Running twoPhaseEulerFoam recompiled with OpenFOAM 1.3 on a case which worked with 1.2, I get this error during the first time-step:

time step continuity errors : sum local = 2.39746e-15, global = 1.06432e-19, cumulative = 9.80563e-18
word::stripInvalid() called for string div(phi,Theta)
Abortito

What does it mean?

Thanks,
Alberto

Sorry, I solved.
There is a space in kineticTheory.C, between phi and Theta:

word scheme("div(phi, Theta)");

I replaced with:

word scheme("div(phi, Theta)");

and it works.

A.P.

stripInvalid is where it detects an invalid character in a word/string. It was switched off since it was found to take up non-insignificant amounts of time in OF 1.2. In 1.3 it prints an error message instead so one can fix the problem.

Please report any occurrences&fixes.

If you're desperate to run with your incorrect code there is a debug switch for string in the OpenFOAM-1.3/controlDict you can set to 0 to switch the checking off (but please report any occurrences otherwise they'll never get fixed)

Hi Mattijs,

I have a problem that seems to bee simular to the one obove.

I have modified simple foam to do heat flux calculations with an application that works in v1.2 but gives the following error message in v1.3:

erik@compadre:~/OpenFOAM/erik-1.3/run/tutorials/fluxFoam$ paraFoam . PD112
/*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*\

fileName::stripInvalid() called for string T(kopia)~
/home/erik/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/bin/paraFoam: line 57: 8579 Aborted paraview paraFoam.pvs

I see in buoyantFoam that there is a T.org file (in 0 dictionary) needed but I have done my code without. I wonder if my problem could be related to what is mentioned above or with the excluded T.org file.

Many thanks
/Erik

sorry to kick this old post, but since you asked to post these errors this seems like the most relevant location.

I'm trying to get FOAM to run some simple testcases by scripting them in bash. I'm using the $FOAM_RUN directory environment variable and I think that plays a role in why it fails.

The output I get is:
Code:
Exec   : blockMesh -case /usr/scratch/cwit/OpenFOAM/cwit-1.5-dev/run/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo
Date   : Oct 26 2009
Time   : 17:47:19
Host   : node02
PID    : 26980
fileName::stripInvalid() called for invalid fileName /usr/scratch/cwit/OpenFOAM/cwit-1.5-dev/run/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo
    For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal
runAll.bash: line 3: 26980 Aborted                 blockMesh -case "$FOAM_RUN/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo"
When running the exact same line blockMesh -case "$FOAM_RUN/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo" from the shell blockMesh just starts and doesn't complain:
Code:
Exec   : blockMesh -case /usr/scratch/cwit/OpenFOAM/cwit-1.5-dev/run/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo
Date   : Oct 26 2009

Host   : node02
PID    : 26631
Case   : /usr/scratch/cwit/OpenFOAM/cwit-1.5-dev/run/091026Try2/Cyl100Lo

Reading block mesh description dictionary
Any idea why this occurs? I'll try and find the debug switch to turn this message off.
