Hi all,
Have you got any suggestios about how to calculate the eigenvalues of a scalar matrix with OpenFoam? Thanks. Regards tommaso 
How big is the matrix? If it
How big is the matrix? If it's a 3x3 tensor then the functionality is already provided but for larger matrices it is not currently available. However there are algorithms in Numerical Recipies (and other books) to do this and the latest C++ edition of the book is pretty good and the code is quite easy to integrate with OpenFOAM.

Can anyone tell me somthing ab
Can anyone tell me somthing about manipulating the coefficients in a linear system in OpenFOAM.
1) Can the central coefficients of a system be manipulated by using lduMatrix::diag()? 2) Can the rhs coefficients be manipulated by using lduMatrix::source()? 3) If yes, the manipulated system xyEqn.diag() *= factor; xyEqn.source() *= factor; should be equal to the initial system (left + right side multiplicated with a diagonal matrix). If that is the case, Iīm doing something wrong, because the solutions of the two systems show a big difference. Thanks in advance Ralph 
You need to be more careful: w
You need to be more careful: what class are you using and what exactly happens.
Class lduMatrix has got the membr functions for const scalarField& lower() const; const scalarField& diag() const; const scalarField& upper() const; but it does not hold the source. That means you are using a derived class (which?) and this may do additional things. Hrv 
Hi Hrvoje,
Iīm using fvMatrix
Hi Hrvoje,
Iīm using fvMatrix class (with scalar type). Iīm actually doing: 1) Creating a linear system of type fvMatrix (e.g. xyEqn) 2) Applying: xyEqn.diag() *= factor; xyEqn.source() *= factor; 3) Solving: xyEqn.solve() (The residuum is lowered about 5 orders of magnitudes during the solution procedure) 4) Again creating the system (with the unknowns of the former solution as "start values"). 5) Solving (without any manipulations). The problem is, that the start residuum for (5) is about that of (3). But if Manipulation in (2) works well, the start residuum should be lower, as (3) should produce similar results to (5) and therefore a good starting solution should be available. Am I doing somthing fundamental wrong? Ralph 
No, it's all fine. The matrix
No, it's all fine. The matrix normalisation is based on the diagonal and source and it's different in the two cases. You could safely ignore this and carry on.

Itīs doing good to hear thatīs
Itīs doing good to hear thatīs all fine.
But if itīs fine I would expect the first result similiar to the second one and therefore the start residuum of the second one to be much lower (as the result should already nearly be reached). Donīt you agree? 
Let's think about it: in terms
Let's think about it: in terms of absolute residuals, you are quite right: boosting the diagonal and the source will mean that you are closer to the solution. However, the reported residuals are normalised (i.e. divided by something) and the normalisation factor is calculated from the matrix itself. Quoting from the code:
//  Calculate reference value of psi scalar psiRef = gAverage(psi_); //  Calculate A.psi and A.psiRef matrix_.Amul(wA, psi_, coupleBouCoeffs_, interfaces_, cmpt_); matrix_.Amul ( pA, scalarField(psi_.size(), psiRef), coupleBouCoeffs_, interfaces_, cmpt_ ); //  Calculate normalisation factor scalar normFactor = gSum(mag(wA  pA) + mag(source_  pA)) + matrix_.small_; You can see the normalisation factor in the last line above. The wa and pa bit is multiplied by the diagona and source_ is source :)If you increase the diagonal and source, the normalisation factor changes  which explains what you see. Clear? Hrv 
Thanks a lot Hrvoje,

Hi,

Hi,
I need to know the difference between BICCG and BiCGSTAB. and if it's possible the article of Vorst. best regards
