I have a problem with the patch in the subject...as in if I am using the rhoExplicitPorousSimpleFoam and its angledDuct tutorial, it works fine. When I am trying to use it into another application written by my humble self it does not work anymore, although I have (apparently) the same includes in the main and options in Make., i.e.
#include "fixedGradientFvPatchFields.H"
and in options:
...
EXE_INC = \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/finiteVolume/cfdTools \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/finiteVolume/lnInclude \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/turbulenceModels \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/transportModels

EXE_LIBS = \
-lfiniteVolume \
-lmeshTools \
-lincompressibleTurbulenceModels \
-lincompressibleTransportModels

I guess it has nothing to do with compressible/incompressible libs...right?
Any ideas?
Thanx,
Radu

Hi,
Still cannot figure out what is happening. Now all my options and includes are incorporate the options and includes of rhoExplicitPorousSimpleFoam and still it says:

Starting time loop

Any ideas of how to fix this?

Are you using an old version of OpenFOAM?

Hi Radu,

Did you manage to fix the problem? It smells like the wrong boundary condition.

Regards,

Gijs
