Hello,

Can any one help me in running simplefoam?

Iam trying to simulate a diesel injector using simpleFoam and getting the following error.
Starting time loop
Time = 1e-07
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 0.0142123, No Iterations 2
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 0.0414204, No Iterations 1
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 0.0415188, No Iterations 1

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
request for surfaceScalarField phiv from objectRegistry region0 failed
available objects of type surfaceScalarField are
3
(
differenceFactors_
phi
weightingFactors
)

From function objectRegistry::lookupObject<Type>(const word&) const
in file /appl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/objectRegistryTemplates.C at line 140.
FOAM aborting

I am new to openfoam ,so please help me.

Regards

hi mouvanal

i think simpleFoam is not the right solver to simulate a dieselInjection

if you are looking for a steady particle tracking -> LTSReactingParcelFoam (openfoam 2.0) could be the right solver

but there are not exact the same injection models like in dieselFoam or sprayFoam (openfoam 2.0)

regards, Dima

Hello Dima,

Thank you for you reply.

I am using simpleFoam only to get the initial solution and the flow field.
After that i want to run cavitating Foam.

..... Can you help on this error message....and how can i get waya with it.

Regards

ah ok, thought you tried to inject something by using simpleFoam

so i am new to openfoam too, and that error message deosn't tell me that much to figure out the error location

did you some modification to any source code?

EDIT: not "pressure p" -> phi would be solved in the next step so something might be wrong to that

maybe you have changed the include statement for phi in the createField.H

Can you tell me more about the problem. As far as i understood, you are trying to initialise P T U k epsilon values using simpleFoam. If possible upload your case file.
