Hello Foamers,
I have been trying to implement a velocity boundary condition in OpenFOAM v2012 following up the groovy boundary condition in swak4FOAM tutorial. As in v2012 there is #eval function instead of former #cal function to specify any function rather a value. I want to specify the inlet boundary condition of a parabola in a 2D pipe as

U = U_max (1 - (h/Total Height)^ 2)

vmax= 0.50
height = 0.40
type fixedValue;
value uniform #eval{
vector(($vmax * (1 - pow( pos().y/ $height ), 2) ,0 ,0))

The problem I am encountering is that the #eval function is prompting a syntax error as:

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: (openfoam-2012)

Syntax error in expression at position:33
vector((0.5000000 * (1 - pow(pos().y/ 0.4000000),2),0,0))
^^^^ near here


From void Foam:arsing::genericRagelLemonDriver::reportFata l(const string&, size_t) const
in file primitives/strings/parsing/genericRagelLemonDriver.C at line 170.

FOAM exiting

whereas formerly this boundary condition works fine with the groovyBC. I am sure I am missing some information in the syntax.

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
