Hey guys,

I found this here and I was wondering if there was an error here. This is regarding the treatment of V (heSource[i] += 1e5*sin(200*cellx[i])*V[i] surely this is should be divided instead. If not why? I just wish to check.

An example showing how to add a source to the energy equation of the form

is shown below:

type coded;
selectionMode all;

fields (h);
name sourceTime;

const Time& time = mesh().time();
const scalarField& V = mesh_.V();
scalarField& heSource = eqn.source();

// Start time
const scalar startTime = 2.0;

// Retrieve the x component of the cell centres
const scalarField& cellx = mesh_.C().component(0);

// Only apply when we have reached the start time
if (time.value() > startTime)
// Apply the source
forAll(cellx, i)
// cell volume specific source
heSource[i] += 1e5*sin(200*cellx[i])*V[i];
