Hello!

I am using turbFoam to do a transient analysis. First I made a steady state analysis with simpleFoam but the results weren't good. So i decided to choose turbFoam , i changed the fvSchemes and fvSolution file but when i run , it stops :

This happens even when I lower the time step to a small value. Am I perhaps doing something wrong when going to transient? I simply set the start time, in controlDict, as the number of the latest iteration from the steady state case in whose folder all variables are saved. Will my boundary conditions be preserved now? Is this the right way to do it or am i missing something here....or somewhere else...

Any ideas appreciated!!

Are you using the localBlended scheme somewhere in your fvSchemes file?

If you are using that scheme, you have to implement a surfaceScalarField called UBlendingFactor in turbFoam, so that the localBlended scheme does know, which of the two provided schemes to use at which point of your computational domain. AFAIR, the values of UBlendingFactor should be somewhere between 1 and 0.

I hope this helps,
Jens
