Default How to map fields using patches of type mappedPatch

Good day swak4Foam members

I have an air solid interface. So, I call the temperature field, Ta, on the air side and Ts on the solid side.

For the sake of argument, let's say that for a certain boundary field patch inside dictionary 0/Ta,

I write

Ta = mappedInternal(Ts);

When I run my program, I get the error

field Ts is not existing or of wrong type

(but I created Ts in createFields.H. I ts is of the same type as Ta and my main code does not complain about it)

Now, if instead I write

Ta = mappedInternal(Ta);

the error goes away. Does that mean swakFoam knows that it has to look at Ts on the solid side simply because out of a multitude of different fields one can create on any given mesh, Ts will be the only one with the same dimensional units as Ta ?

That better be the answer, otherwise, I really don't know how

Ta = mappedInternal(Ta);

can make any sense.

Have a nice weekend,
