I am learning how to add a user defined application, and I copied the dielseFoam in /application/ and change the file names to MyFoam and compiled it successfully,the path is set as follows:
EXE= $(FOAM_APPBIN)/MyFoam
but when run FoamX after that, I can not find this application solver in the standard solver list in FoamX, what should/can do to add it to the standard application list?

Search the board for FOAMX_USER_CONFIG and you should pick up a thread discussing how to do this.

good luck,

Mattijs

hi,

1-to add a user defined application, i copied the icoFoam in /application/ and change the file name to buildingFoam , but when i compiled it, the path is set as follows:

EXE=$(FOAM_APPBIN)/icoFoam why?
because , i think that when compilation is made successfully, the true path is set as follows:

EXE=$(FOAM_APPBIN)/buildingFoam

can you explain me where is a problem
2- i must rename icoFoam.C to buildingFoam.C?(when i do this the code does not compile)

thank you

hi,

no, i did not made edition in Make/file.

then, i must edit Make/file and change $(FOAM_APPBIN)/icoFoam to $(FOAM_APPBIN)/buildingFoam?
I must remove the expression icoFoam and replace it by buildingFoam?

thank you

That would be a good start. It would also be a good idea to use FOAM_USER_APPBIN rather than FOAM_APPBIN. By the way all this is covered in UserGuide.pdf which is supplied with the release and is also available from the web-site.

If you want to setup FoamX for your new solver you will have to create configuration files for it. Take a look at the configuration files for the standard applications in OpenFOAM-1.1/applications/utilities/preProcessing/FoamX/config/applications

executable buildingFoam;

I have no idea what you are doing wrong and I haven't got any spare time right now to investigate because I am busy preparing the next release, perhaps someone else can help you.

hi, chafi fatima zohra, maybe you can solve the problem as followings:

1. find the controlDic file in the path
home/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.1/.OpenFOAM-1.1/

2. add the following sentence to the file
"$FOAM_RUN/tutorials/buildinFoam"

Good Luck!!
