Allwmake foamCalcFunctions functionObjects postCalc

In "Allwmake" types for the three:
postCalc : libo
foamCalcFunctions : libso
functionObjects : libso

Ref{
In User's Guide "Running wmake"
libso : dynamically linked lib (*.so)
libo : statically linked object file lib (*.o)

There is a post of Tobi's eq-code explanation on viscous stress.

In incompressible flow, beside normal stress (taken out as p*I), the viscous part is only a function of deviate part of grad(U) (or its transpose).

In "SymmTensorI.H"
there are tow functions for deviate part of a tensor as explained by Tobi : dev and dev2

• Do it interactively: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Contrib/SwiftBlock
• Cheat by using snappyHexMesh, as shown in the tutorial "mesh/snappyHexMesh/iglooWithFridges".
• Use Plot3D format to design the mesh, then convert with datToFoam and then run blockMesh.
• Use OpenFOAM's codeStream and code it directly

Well, since you're building your own code, I suggest that you study this wiki page: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/HowTo_debugging

As for the output you're getting:
1. Line #1 is telling you that a SIGFPE has been triggered: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIGFPE#SIGFPE
2. Line #3 is telling you more or less where the problem occurred.
