Default error after compiling a new solver

I modified the reactingFoam solver to calculate radiative heat transfer by adding the radiation source term in the enthalpy Equation. After compiling, I tried to run a case that runs smoothly with normal reacting foam solver. But When I run the same case with the modified reactingFoam solver, I get the following error:

Unknown turbulenceModel type RASModel

Valid turbulenceModel types:


From function turbulenceModel::New(const volScalarField&, const volVectorField&, const surfaceScalarField&, basicThermo&, const word&)
in file turbulenceModel.C at line 116.

FOAM exiting

when I change the turbulence model type to 'laminar', I do not get any error...Any help what might went wrong??

Hi Marshak,

I had the same error after I updated my gcc version. The new version needs a different rule for compiling, see Mattjis comment on that issue at

After applying these changes to the rule-files in


it worked for me.

Have a nice day,
