Hello Guys,


I am quite new to openfoam and was trying a turbulent heat transfer case. I edited the blockmesh file for the tutorials>heatTransfer>buoyantPimpleFoam>hotRoomBo ussinesq. Introduced a cubical block with a hot wall (673K) on the left side and a cold wall (193K) on the right side wall. when i ran the case through openFoam for 10000 iterations it is not writing a folder at 100 interval mark which i gace in the controlDict and also no heat transfer is seen between the hot and cold wall.


WHAT AM I DOING WRONG ..... Pls Help

Hi Amal,

Does the solver run properly? Can you post the log files here please?

Thanks,
Yann

these are the log files...... I blocked the log.setFields file from being written.


the other two log files are here

Thank you Amal,

Have a look at your buoyantPimpleFoam log file. The solver did not run because it misses the PIMPLE dictionary in the fvSolution file.

You have to fix this error.

Is this cause of mentioning simple in fvSolution instead of pimple

Yes, you are probably using a fvSolution file from a steady case (like buoyantSimpleFoam).
If your case is based on the hotRoomBoussinesq tutorial (tutorials>heatTransfer>buoyantPimpleFoam>hotRoomB oussinesq), try to replace your fvSolution file by the one from the tutorial.
