I am currently facing problems when calculating heat transfer values at boundary which is used for flux boundary condition.

I am fixing the heat transfer co-efficient in cells based on the value of temperature. When doing this the values are fixed in the cells but the values at the boundary are zero.
I made some changes as

label patchI = mesh.boundaryMesh().findPatchID("leftmovingwall");
zeroGradientFvPatchScalarField& bufferh = refCast<zeroGradientFvPatchScalarField>(hT.boundar yField()[patchI]);
forAll (bufferh, faceI)
{
if (T.boundaryField()[patchI][faceI] < Tmin_hT.value())
{
bufferh[faceI] = hT_Tmin.value();
}
else if (T.boundaryField()[patchI][faceI] >= Tmin_hT.value())
{
bufferh[faceI] = hT_Tmax.value();
}
}

The compilation of code did not produce any error but when i start the simulation i get the following error :

Attempt to cast type calculated to type zeroGradient#0 Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/apps/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/lib/linux64GccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so"

Could any1 tell me how can this problem be solved?

Hi, I'm having a similar problem with chtMultiRegionFoam, where I get the following error:


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Attempt to cast type calculated to type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffle

From function refCast<To>(From&)
in file /home/gballoch/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/typeInfo.H at line 114.

FOAM aborting


I know you posted here a long time ago but I was wondering if you resolved what the problem was? I think it is probably an inconsistency in BC's, but I've double checked all of them and they appear to be fine!

I do have the same problem.

But I still have solved one case with exactly the same settings with one exeption.
In the first case, which solved with the same settings, there was only one solid and one fluid.

Now the problem appears with two solids and one fluid.
As I said I have used exactly the same settings for the T files.

Does someone know how to solve this problem?

Hi,

I know now that the simulation works with the following setting:

Galvano
{
type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
value $internalField;
neighbourFieldName T;
K K;
}
Geo2
{
type fixed value;
value uniform 573;
}


But I want to do it like this:
Galvano
{
type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
value $internalField;
neighbourFieldName T;
K K;
}
Geo2
{
type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
value $internalField;
neighbourFieldName T;
K K;
}

But than I recieve the following error message:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Attempt to cast type zeroGradient to type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed
From function refCast<To>(From&)
in file /local/OpenFOAM/src/OpenFOAM-1.7.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/typeInfo.H at line 114.
FOAM aborting

Does someone know where the mistake is?

Best Regards,

I still have tried to set up the neighbourFieldName T; to another variable, but the solver needs the T here.
It's also the same with K K;.

I still think that I have to use different entries here, but I'm not sure.

Best Ragards,

I have now solved the problem.

By using

value uniform 573.15;
//value $internalField;
in
*
{
type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
value uniform 573.15;
//value $internalField;
neighbourFieldName T;
K K;
}

the solver is running.
It's very strange.

The solver runs good with only one solid and one fluid with the value $internalField.
But with two solids the solver only runs with value uniform 573,15.

Hi,

I've had the same problem.
It seemed that the b.c at the fluid was fine,
but the b.c. at the solid was "zeroGradient"
