Dear Foamers,

I was trying to set up a scalar point source to scalarTransportFoam and I found timeActivatedExplicitCellSource which seems to be the perfect tool, but I cannot figure out exactly how to use it. Does someone have experience, or is it used in some of the tutorials? Should I use a cellSetDict to define?

Any guidance is appreciated.

Not sure about timeActivatedExplicitCellSource, but it seems to be similar to timeActivatedExplicitMulticomponentPointSource, which is used in tutorials/lagrangian/porousExplicitSourceReactingParcelFoam solver. There is a tutorial "filter"; you might look there and the source code for this solver. I just started raking through it myself. I suspect that the approach used in this solver and tutorial is described in the thesis Pls correct if I'm wrong, because these explicit sources are important to me too.

(The above apply to OF version 1.6 that I have; I don't know if these are included in other versions.)

Hi, I'm also having OF1.6 and I have also found this filter tutorial, but meanwhile I created a turbulent transport equation with a source term which seems to be working with a new source variable. I havent tested much yet though. The equation is very simple and it is not coupled but I dont need that so far, if this is enough for you I can send it.
