Problem setting with chtmultiregionFoam
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,
I am using openfoam 1.5 on ubuntu (installed from ppa repo)and I'm novice in OpenFoam To get a quick summary: I want to simulate an hot fluid flow in a steel tube. I am trying to setup a 3D case with chtmultiregionFoam, but I'm getting some trouble with it.I am starting from the tutorial one (see http://www.cfdonline.com/OpenFOAM_D...eater8318.unk ).With my new case, i get a segmentation faults. My problem is, when I run chtmultiregion this message apair: Create time Create fluid mesh for region gaz for time = 0.001 Create solid mesh for region Solid for time = 0.001 *** Reading fluid mesh thermophysical properties for region gaz Adding to pdf Adding to thermof Selecting thermodynamics package hThermo<pureMixture<constTransport<specieThermo<hC onstThermo<perfectGas>>>>> Adding to rhof Adding to Kf Adding to Uf Adding to phif Adding to turb Selecting RAS turbulence model kEpsilon Adding to DpDtf Adding to ghf Updating p from pd *** Reading solid mesh thermophysical properties for region Solid Adding to rhos Adding to cps Adding to Ks Adding to Ts Region: gaz Courant Number mean: 0 max: 0.01 Region: gaz Courant Number mean: 0 max: 0.2994012 deltaT = 0.02994012 Time = 0.0309401 Solving for fluid region gaz diagonal: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 #0 Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libOpenFOAM.so" #1 Foam::sigSegv::sigSegvHandler(int) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libOpenFOAM.so" #2 ?? in "/lib/libc.so.6" #3 Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>::PatchFieldType const& Foam::fvPatch::lookupPatchField<Foam::GeometricFie ld<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>, double>(Foam::word const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const*, double const*) const in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #4 Foam::fvPatchField<double>::adddictionaryConstruct orToTable<Foam::solidWallHeatFluxTemperatureFvPatc hScalarField>::New(Foam::fvPatch const&, Foam::DimensionedField<double, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::dictionary const&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #5 Foam::fixedGradientFvPatchField<double>::evaluate( Foam::Pstream::commsTypes) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #6 Foam::gradientEnthalpyFvPatchScalarField::updateCo effs() in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libbasicThermophysicalModels.so" #7 Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>::GeometricBoundaryField::updateCoef fs() in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" #8 Foam::fvMatrix<double>::fvMatrix(Foam::GeometricFi eld<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&, Foam::dimensionSet const&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" #9 Foam::fv::gaussLaplacianScheme<double, double>::fvmLaplacianUncorrected(Foam::GeometricFi eld<double, Foam::fvsPatchField, Foam::surfaceMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" #10 Foam::fv::gaussLaplacianScheme<double, double>::fvmLaplacian(Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvsPatchField, Foam::surfaceMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" #11 Foam::fv::laplacianScheme<double, double>::fvmLaplacian(Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" #12 Foam::tmp<Foam::fvMatrix<double> > Foam::fvm::laplacian<double, double>(Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&, Foam::word const&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #13 Foam::tmp<Foam::fvMatrix<double> > Foam::fvm::laplacian<double, double>(Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #14 Foam::tmp<Foam::fvMatrix<double> > Foam::fvm::laplacian<double, double>(Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> > const&, Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #15 Foam::fvPatchField<double>::adddictionaryConstruct orToTable<Foam::solidWallTemperatureCoupledFvPatch ScalarField>::New(Foam::fvPatch const&, Foam::DimensionedField<double, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::dictionary const&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #16 Foam::fvPatchField<double>::adddictionaryConstruct orToTable<Foam::solidWallTemperatureCoupledFvPatch ScalarField>::New(Foam::fvPatch const&, Foam::DimensionedField<double, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::dictionary const&) in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" #17 __libc_start_main in "/lib/libc.so.6" #18 ?? in "/usr/lib/OpenFOAM1.5/applications/bin/chtMultiRegionFoam" Segmentation fault I do not know where this error come,I think I misunderstood creatPatchDict set in the file system, but I'm not sure because I did not understand its usefulness. For more information I have joind to my post my file system (system.tar.gz Attachment 273).If you have any solutions please don't esitate. Thank you. Antonin 
Antonin!
One needs to know more about your setup (e.g. BCs). Unfortunately I was not able to download the system files. Aram

structure of the steadystate solvers like chtMultiSimpleFoam. I have entered into controlDict as a time step 1. But the chtMultiRadFoam doesn't solve as instructed. Does someone can explain that to me? Many thanks! Best regards, tH3f0rC3 
hi!
you might have set Code:
adjustTimeStep yes; Code:
adjustTimeStep no; cheers, aram 
Perfect!
That was exactly the point. :) Thank you! 
chtMultiRegionFoam
Hi
I want take a simple run from example "chtMultiRegionFoam" but when It give error. Error is " Can not read file "pints" at time 0 ". How do you take a simple run from This solver (after blockMesh)? Thanks

take a better look at the case files and folders at /tutorials/heatTransfer/chtMultiRegion* but run these cases b4 taking any conclusions. The Allrun script will do a few things. Once the case is run, take a look at the file/folder structure you got and the log files. cht makes sense with more than 1 volume region, (solid and air,... etc) that you'll have to create using blockmesh or splitMeshregions app. Unless your case is simple it might be a little hard to set the case using OF preprocessing tools alone, but it is feasible. gl 
Thanks a lot "Calim"
