Hi,

I am getting the following error while running potentialFoam. Can someone please tell me the probable reason for that.

FOAM aborting

Greetings Jubayer,

There is some strange crazy stuff going on there, which is why it's crashing!

#2 and #3 from the 1st post indicate that it crashed when it was trying to output an error message (#2), which occurred when reading from some file (#3).
From the 2nd post, there is an error that the compiler would never have allowed to happen!
To top that, it looks like you have two versions of OpenFOAM overlapping each other! Namely 1.7.1 and 1.7.x! This should never happen... unless one knows what one is doing!

Additionally, running a tutorial that is not from the official list of tutorials will increase the probability of error! "Solarpanels" is not a tutorial from the list of tutorials distributed with OpenFOAM!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi blackbirdinapie,

potentialFoam only works if the velocity and pressure are fixedValues, not a profile. For my case, I had a velocity profile at the inlet which caused the error. Hope this helps.
