Where is the thermoType read in the code?
Dear All,

In the solver rhoPimpleFoam, the thermodynamics models are defined in constant/ thermophysicalProperties as follows:

thermoType hPsiThermo<pureMixture<sutherlandTransport<specieT hermo<hConstThermo<perfectGas>>>>>;

I am wondering if where the themoType is read for rhoPimpleFoam. I am not proficient at C++. Thank you very much.

best regards,

this depends a bit on the OF Version you use (changed in OF2.2)

In the older versions (which from your post I guess you are using) have a look at $OpenFOAM/src/thermophysicalModels/basic/psiThermo/basicPsiThermo/basicPsiThermoNew.C.

Kind Regards,
