I get the following error starting a new case with interFoam:

Mean and max Courant Numbers = 0 0
deltaT = 0.002
Time = 0.002

Liquid phase volume fraction = 0.25 Min(gamma) = 0 Max(gamma) = 1
Liquid phase volume fraction = 0.25 Min(gamma) = 0 Max(gamma) = 1
Liquid phase volume fraction = 0.25 Min(gamma) = 0 Max(gamma) = 1
Liquid phase volume fraction = 0.25 Min(gamma) = 0 Max(gamma) = 1


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : LHS and RHS of - have different dimensions
dimensions : [0 -2 0 0 0 0 0] - [1 -2 -2 0 0 0 0]


From function operator-(const dimensionSet& ds1, const dimensionSet& ds2)
in file dimensionSet/dimensionSet.C at line 375.

FOAM aborting

Aborted

Does anyone know what is wrong?

I discovered the problem. Aparently when you initiate a new interFoam case (not a clone case), the dimensions set in the transportProperties file are not correct and you have to edit the file because FoamX does not allow changing dimensions.

I think version 1.1 didn't have this problem. In this version you also have to set the div schemes since they are not set by default.

Hi Billy,

if you think this is a bug can you report it in the OpenFOAM-bugs section? Please specify which constant in the transportProperties is wrong etc. See also the bug template.

thanks

Hi Billy,

I also have the same problem when I tried a new solver for CO2 concetration model. So I put my error and solver here. Could you please help me see and give some advice?

Thanks in advance.

my variables and dimensions:
nu (viscosity): kg/s*m

mu (Kinematic viscosity, thermal diffusivity, mass diffusivity): m^2/s,

pd (pressure): N/m^2 = (kg/(m/s^2))/m^2 = kg*s^2/m^3

rho (density): kg/m^3

rhoinj (injection): kg/s

resist (permeability): m^2

D (diffusion): m^2/s

Porous (porosity): constant

gh (gravity): m/s^2

C (concentration): kg/m^3

U (velocity): m/s

The error:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : LHS and RHS of - have different dimensions
dimensions : [1 -3 2 0 0 0 0] - [1 -1 -2 0 0 0 0]


From function operator-(const dimensionSet& ds1, const dimensionSet& ds2)
in file dimensionSet/dimensionSet.C at line 375.
