Default Missing solver?

I am trying to run a simulation which uses simpleFOAM. The output log indicates the following:
Code:
Starting time loop

End

Finalising parallel run
I have run this with other OF installations so I am tempted to think that this could be due to a bad installation. How can I debug this problem? What am I really missing?


Cheers

It seems that is not due to the installation.

First time is run works well, but the following runs using the same decomposition files don't work. Without knowing much, I think OF understands that the solver has been run already (time files inside processor directories).

Check your controlDict setup, especially the startFrom, startTime, stopAt and endTime parameters.

It looks like you are trying to rerun a simulation which already reached the endTime.


Cheers,

Indeed, for benchmarking purposes I want to rerun the simulation several times. So far I've overcome the problem deleting the Time directories from within the processes folders. Is there any better/cleaner solution?

Yes, by setting the startFrom parameter:

Code:
  startFrom       startTime;  
  startTime       0;

You can find more details in the user guide : https://cfd.direct/openfoam/user-gui...#x19-1410004.4
