Hello foamers,

I'm using an extra file (parameters) to source all my variables into blockMeshDict and topoSetDict so I can easily adjust my geometry.

I have just finished including the multigrading section in BlockMeshDict and I'm getting supper weird results when including variables from "parameters"...if I define all multigrading parameters this way I even get a seg-fault. Using some hardcoded values allows blockMesh to solve but it does so with weird values.

Is there something similar to Printf with which I can print my variables after they were parsed?
I'm looking for a way to debug my code.

I have included my blockMeshDict and parameters file in case anyone wants to give it a try.
In blockMeshDict lines [42-47] i've hardcoded the values that should come from the calculated parameters established in parameters lines [117-123]. I've commented out the solution I would like to employ.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

kind regards,

AFAIK, it isn't possible to output anything from blockMeshDict. This is probably because the dictionary is just that, a dictionary, and so OF is very clear in the type of information it needs in a dictionary under each of the headings.

In blockMesh you can probably add "Info << " to output what you want, but at the moment I do not know how you will be able to access the particular point/value you are looking for.

Hope this clarifies.

Hi Antimony,

I supposed it wouldn't be possible. I'll try "Info <<" and will post any updates.
