Hello everyone!

I am currently working on the turbulent combustion (premixed and stratified) modelling, and I have some difficulties in openFOAM language programming.

I created a member function e.g. internalPhi() (which calculates the local equivalence ratio field) in the inhomogeneousMixture class. I need to visualize the Phi field in my solver (which is based on XiFoam or engineFoam), but I could not figure out how to call the inhomogeneousMixture class in XiFoam.

There are some hints in calling the member functions for turbulence model, e.g. in the createField.H

autoPtr<compressible::turbulenceModel> turbulence

Then we can use "turbulence->k()" in the solver.

Another example is in createField.H
autoPtr<hhuCombustionThermo> pThermo

hhuCombustionThermo& thermo = pThermo();
Then we can use "thermo.rho()" in the solver.

But I couldn't find any example of creating a MixtureType (inhomogeneousMixture). Does anyone have idea about how to call inhomogeneousMixture.func() in XiFoam solver? Thanks!
