Hi foamers,

I am trying to simulate Heat transfer problem in OF 1.6 with "chtMultiRegionFoam".
I gone through the tutorial "multiRegionHeater" inside of "chtMultiRegionFoam".
I did case set up & run it, as it is shown in tutorial.
While post-processing in ParaFoam "Volume Fields" has nothing to show. It doesn't have any single property/parameter to do post-processing.

Any suggestion / guidelines to resolve this problem will be appreciable.

Thanks alot.......

Hi,
you have to load each region in paraview. open the .OpenFOAM files with paraview.

Hi,

in the multiRegionheater folder, do "./Allrun"

When the run completes, type "paraview". Then click "open". then, you can select the region(s) you want to visualize, for example

multiRegionheater{bottomAir}.OpenFOAM

After this, you can visualize whatever parameters you are interested in, such as T, p, U..

While in the same session, you can open more regions.

hi devesh,
This is Rahul here. I am new in OpenFoam. I am using Ubuntu9.04, OpenFOAM-1.6. I am trying to go through the heat transfer tutorial ->chtMultiRegionFoam. I am getting following message in terminal.

Greetings Rahul,

Uhm, I guess you didn't read properly what Pei said in post #3:
Quote:
in the multiRegionheater folder, do "./Allrun"
In other words, instead of executing chtMultiRegionFoam directly, you should have executed:
Code:
./Allrun
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno..
can u plz help me to sort out the pbm in chtMultiRegionFoam..
After running Allrun I m getting following error..

Greetings Javed,

OK, run the following lines:
Code:
foamCleanTutorials
rm log.*
rm *.OpenFOAM
bash Allrun
The first line issues the usual clean up made for tutorials, but it won't erase all of the unneeded files. The second and third line remove the logs and the files to open in paraFoam/paraview.
Now, the forth line forces bash to be used to execute the Allrun script, instead of sh.

Nonetheless, If you still want to use "./Allrun", then edit the Allrun file, and change the first line:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
to
Code:
#!/bin/bash
I hope that solves your problem


Edit: By the way, in case you want to run in single core instead of multi-core, go near the end of the Allrun file and change:
Code:
#-- Run on single processor
#runApplication chtMultiRegionFoam

# Decompose
for i in bottomAir topAir heater leftSolid rightSolid
do
   decomposePar -region $i >& log.decomposePar.$i
done

# Run
runParallel chtMultiRegionFoam 4

# Reconstruct
for i in bottomAir topAir heater leftSolid rightSolid
do
   reconstructPar -region $i >& log.reconstructPar.$i
done
to this:
Code:
#-- Run on single processor
runApplication chtMultiRegionFoam

# Decompose
#for i in bottomAir topAir heater leftSolid rightSolid
#do
#   decomposePar -region $i >& log.decomposePar.$i
#done

# Run
#runParallel chtMultiRegionFoam 4

# Reconstruct
#for i in bottomAir topAir heater leftSolid rightSolid
#do
#   reconstructPar -region $i >& log.reconstructPar.$i
#done
As you can see, the part that I commented out (added a # to the beginning) is required for most scenarios of parallel processing in OpenFOAM. The file "system/decomposeParDict" defines how the volume is divided to each core.

Best regards,
Bruno

Greetings Javed,

Unfortunately, I have nearly no experience in adding new features to OpenFOAM solvers. Nonetheless, this seems to be the main issue:
Code:
Unknown asymmetric matrix preconditioner DIC

Valid asymmetric matrix preconditioners :

4
(
none
GAMG
diagonal
DILU
)
Check in the system/* files that you have in the case folder and search for DIC and try changing it to one of the 4 listed. At least, that's what I would do!

Best regards,
Bruno
