I would like to write out a temporary volScalarField object:
virtual tmp<volScalarField> alphaEff

during simulation. Is this possible to do in OpenFOAM somehow?

Best regards
Deji

Why make it temporary if you want to write it out?

And I've never seen a virtual variable before.

However, I see what you're getting at. You can use .write() to write that object to file at any point in a simulation. Or you can create an IOobject with AUTO_WRITE, and assign alphaEff to it. Then it will be output every writeInterval (in controlDict).

I think he's referring to the method itself, which is virtual and which returns a tmp<volScalarField>.

No problem, just use the write() method but note that this method belongs to the underlying class and not to tmp<> itself.

Since the alphaEff method returns a tmp<volScalarField> you'll either need to dereference it, or create a volScalarField from it.

Option 1 (not particularly elegant), create a volScalarField:
Code:
{
   volScalarField alphaEff = turb.alphaEff();
   alphaEff.write();
}
Option 2, using a dereferenced tmp:
Code:
{
   tmp<volScalarField> talphaEff = turb.alphaEff();
   talphaEff().write();
}
Option 3 is the most succinct and also uses a dereferenced tmp but without an intermediate variable. This is what I'd use.
Code:
   turb.alphaEff()().write();
I hope this helps.

Although you may not want to write out the file evey time step. Perhaps enclose it in this?

Code:
if(runTime.outputTime())
{
     turb.alphaEff()().write(); 
}

Anyone happen to know how I can output nuTilda field calculated in SpalartAllmaras model?

Cheers,
Saba
