Hi,

I'm trying to get the lift and drag forces using icoFoam. I've add on my controlDict:

functions
(
forces
{
type forces;
functionObjectLibs ("libforces.so");
rhoInf 1000;
patches (cylinder);
CofR (0 0 0);
outputControl timeStep;
outputInterval 1;
}
forceCoeffs
{
// rhoInf - reference density
// CofR - Centre of rotation
// dragDir - Direction of drag coefficient
// liftDir - Direction of lift coefficient
// pitchAxis - Pitching moment axis
// magUinf - free stream velocity magnitude
// lRef - reference length
// Aref - reference area
type forceCoeffs;
functionObjectLibs ("libforces.so");
patches (cylinder);
rhoName rhoInf;
rhoInf 1000;
CofR (0 0 0);
liftDir (0 0 1);
dragDir (0 1 0);
pitchAxis (0 0 1);
magUInf 0.001;
lRef 0.1; // cylinder max diameter
Aref 0.314159265358979; //projected area from cylinder
outputControl timeStep;
outputInterval 1;
}
);


and I got the following error:


--> FOAM Warning :
From function dlLibraryTable:pen(const fileName&)
in file db/dynamicLibrary/dlLibraryTable/dlLibraryTable.C at line 99
could not load "libforces.so"


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Unknown function type forces

Table of functionObjects is empty


From function functionObject::New(const word& name, const Time&, const dictionary&)
in file db/functionObjects/functionObject/functionObject.C at line 74.

FOAM exiting


Should I add anything else to any file and recompile?

Thank you

For me, it was not necessary, but maybe try to add
libs ( "libmyDynamicFvMesh.so" );
before
functions {

Hi,

thank you but it is still not working. I'm using MacOS and OpenFoam-2.0 and I have the following kind of problem when I'm compiling :

+ wmakePrintBuild -check

Is it OpenFoam not proper installed? It could be the reason why the forces lib is not find?

Thank you

Hi,

I've solved the problem. It is working changing the extension ".so" by ".dylib".
