Not all fields written as part of solution
Hey all,
I am simulating a laminar diffusion flame using a solver that is built on the lines of reactingFoam in version 1.7.1. I have added some new fields for calculations, like the diffusivities, viscosities, mole fractions, etc. But I find that while running, some fields are not being written to the solution, even when I initialize them like this:

    dimensionedScalar("zero",dimensionSet(1,-1,-1,0,0,0,0),0 )

I am using this initializer as part of a constructor of an object where I have this defines. Strangely, some other objects (volScalarFields) initialized in this way get written properly.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

i guess you are going to define ur variable twice!
mu_ maybe is defined in another file too

Thanks for replying. Actually I managed to fix the issue by changning the string
"mu" to "Mu" in the function call. Maybe it was in conflict with a different variable of same name in the IOdict .
