Hello, Thanks to the answer
Thanks to the answers to another user's question, I was able
to implement unsteady boundary conditions in "sonicFoam" by
changing the boundary values in the code itself.
The variables I want to change at the boundaries are velocity
and temperature. There are no problems with velocity.
However, since the solver solves for internal energy, I need
to modify the boundary value for internal energy, as changing
temperature alone would not be correct.
This is not a problem for this case. However, I am planning to
have unsteady boundary conditions on reacting cases, with multiple
species, and I was wondering if there is a more elegant way to
Would using the "timeVaryingUniformFixedValue" type for the
boundary conditions solve this problem?
I tried to use it based on the answer given to another question,
but I get this error:
BICCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 1.10364e-16, No Iterations 1

Thank you for your help,
Hi Kian, I assume you are u
I assume you are using OpenFOAM-1.4 or 1.4.1.
You need specify filename in boundaryField.
An example for T field is as follows:
value uniform 315;
File "inletTemp" must be placed in "<root>" or
the filename must include relative path from
<root> when you execute "sonicFoam <root> <case>".
Hi Masato, Thanks for your
Thanks for your help, but this is exactly what I did, except that I am on 1.3.1. Could this be the problem?
Hello again, I was trying t
I was trying to avoid 1.4.1, but I compiled the source, and I still get the same error:
file "" does not exist
Hi, Kian Sorry, this is not
Sorry, this is not a problem with versions.
For OF-1.3 and OF-1.4, I confirmed your problem
with sonicFoam & timeVarying..BC for T.
I found timevarying..BC works for
sonicTurbFoam using h.
In sonicTurbFoam, h is a data member of
basicThermo class. And basicThermo
calcualates h from T or T from h.
I guess timeVarying..BC for T works for another
applications using basicThermo class or derived
class of it.
Hello Masato, Thank you for
Thank you for you help, sonicTurbFoam does what I'm looking for.About the timeVaryingUniformFixedValue, I have found out that in sonicFoam, I can use it with the pressure boundary condition with no problems. However, when I do the same with temperature, I get this,
FOAM FATAL IO ERROR : file "" does not exist
, which looks like it does not read the file name in the temperature boundary condition.
Hi Kian, Explaining the dif
Explaining the different effect of
timeVaryingUniformFixedValue BC on T
for sonicFoam and sonicTurbFoam
( e=cv*T and thermo->h() ) is beyond
my understanding of FOAM.
I hope someone else will explain why.
