Hi Khaled

From the message above, we can infer that the type of alpha and U are incompatible. for instance, volScalarField + volVectorField

I also noticed that the code segment below
+ fvm::Sp(ix, alpha)
it is a impilit operation, if alpha and U are not the same object, adding them will also cause the problems.

Hope this helps

Hi Junwei,

thanks for the answer.
For alpha i add

volVectorField alpha

I thought for ix it is enough to be a volScalar or a Scalar.
