problems with pow(scalar, double)Hi Foamers,
i got a problem with the mathcalls.h especially with the pow() funktion. In my case I need a pow(scalar, double) function: scalar area1 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[0]);//Fläche des Pätches inlet scalar sumFieldp0 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[0]*p.boundaryField()[0]) / area1; scalar area2 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1]);//Fläche eines Pätches outlets scalar sumFieldp1 = gSum( mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1] * p.boundaryField()[1] ) / area2; //Temperatur eines Pätches outlets scalar Temp2 = gSum( mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1] * T.boundaryField()[1] ) / area2; scalar sumField = sumFieldp0 + sumFieldp1; scalar Gaskonstante = 259.8;//Gaskonstante Luft = 259.8 scalar X = pow(sumField, 0.4); ERROR buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam_alphak.C: In function 'int main(int, char**)': buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam_alphak.C:103: error: call of overloaded 'pow(Foam::scalar&, double)' is ambiguous /usr/include/bits/mathcalls.h:154: note: candidates are: double pow(double, double) The errror seems clear, the pow-function with a scalar and double. But how can I solve it? :confused: Thanks Sven |

Hi Sven,
Let me suggest you something. Replace the line : scalar X = pow(sumField, 0.4); by: scalar X = Foam::pow(sumField, 0.4); Mathieu |

Thanks Mathieu,
it works |
