Hello,

I am new to OF and for my boundary condition I want to read in a file.
Somehow I am not able to get it running with the OFv1906 version. When I change the BC to a fixed value the simulation runs without any error messages.


"cut_A82_1.tif_intens_p4_f.stl.*"
{
type uniformFixedGradient;
uniformGradient tableFile;
uniformGradientCoeffs
{
fileName "$FOAM_CASE/keyhole.data";
};

}

The error Message is:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
Entry 'file' not found in dictionary "/mnt/c/Users/ac134577/OpenFOAM/Test2/0/T.boundaryField.cut_A82_1.tif_intens_p4_f.stl.*.un iformGradientCoeffs"


file: /mnt/c/Users/ac134577/OpenFOAM/Test2/0/T.boundaryField.cut_A82_1.tif_intens_p4_f.stl.*.un iformGradientCoeffs

From function bool Foam::dictionary::readEntry(const Foam::word&, T&, Foam::keyType:: option, bool) const [with T = Foam::fileName]
in file /home/pawan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1906/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/dictionaryTemplates.C at line 317.


Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thank you for your help!!

Hi,

It looks like OpenFOAM searches for the keyword file instead of fileName.

Hope that will solve your problem.

Regards,
Tom
