How can I access to the gravity vector "g" from swak4foam?

Tried this but "g" is not recognised by the swakExpression
Code:
getG
{
    type executeIfObjectExists;
    readDuringConstruction true;

    objectName g;
    checkType true;
    objectType uniformDimensionedVectorField;
    objectShouldExist false;

    functions
    {
        loadG
        {
            type readGravitation;
        }
    }
   outputControlMode	timeStep; //timeStep
   outputInterval  1;
   verbose			true;
}

gz
{
	type 			swakExpression;
	valueType		patch;
	patchName		inlet;

	expression	"mag(g)*pos().z";
	accumulations	( average )

	outputControlMode	timeStep; //timeStep
	outputInterval  1;
	verbose			true;
}
I get this error:
Code:

What am I missing?

Thank you,

Hey Lourenco!
I'm facing a similar problem where OF is not recognizing gravity when I use groovyBC in parallel. Did you find a work around to this problem?

Thanks!!

Best,
Sriram

Hey Scram_1,

I didn't. I did a workaround...
I was using this in a postProcessing swakExpression of a case with gravitational acceleration not aligned with the z axis. In the end I introduced the orientation manually in the swakExpression.

Sorry! Please write here if you find the solution.

Good luck,
Lourenšo
