problem while defining a new volScalarField in a new turbulence model
I am working on a new turbulence model which utilizes the basic Governing Equations of LaunderSharmaKE model. I need to modify the expression for nut. While doing so, I make use of a new term, k2e (it is a name i have given to this new variable, where k2e = sqr(k_)/epsilonTilda_ ) and in one part of the code it requires me to solve for div(phi_,k2e). I could implement all the equations and expressions in the new source code and I could also compile it successfully.
But when I try to run a case using that scheme, I get an error message::
--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
  keyword div(phi,(sqr(k)|epsilon)) is undefined in dictionary "/home/users/nikesh/Work/mvg/2-3Dflatplate-test/processor8/../system/fvSchemes::divSchemes"
I get the idea that this error is asking me to define the div(phi,k2e) term in the system/fvScheme file. I did that too.
div(phi,k2e) Gauss upwind
And I still get the same error!
Any help is highly appreciated.
Include the exact keyword in your fvSchemes, so:
div(phi,(sqr(k)|epsilon)) Gauss upwind;
That should do it.
I had tried that option too but still wouldn't work. However good news that I managed to sort it out in another way.
I constructed and defined the function k2e_ in the source code.C file as::
I also declared it in the header (source_code.H) file as::
The expressions were then implemented and used in the part where viscosity is calculated.
And hence in the system/fvSchemes file, I could use::
div(phi,k2e) Gauss upwind;
I appreciate your reply though!!
