I'm trying to compile a solver in OF 2.1.1 for conjugate heat transfer which I believe was developed in version 1.5. Unfortunately it gives couple of fatal error that can not find some hearers such as coupledFvMatrices. I tried to find a substitution adaptive in newer version of OF but even I couldn't find these headers in OF version 1.5 SVN. Has anybody ever experienced needing these files? OR maybe knows what was the contents?

Hi Smraniaki,

The conjugateHeatFoam solver which your are looking for can be found in OpenFOAM-1.6-ext ( This version of the code can be downloaded via SourceForge (

Just like you experienced the classes needed for the conjugateHeatFoam solver is not found in 2.1 (or any other version than 1.6-ext to my knowledge). The coupledFvMatrices format allows for solving for one field in many different regions. In the tutorial the temperature field of both a solid and fluid is solved together in one matrix. The beauty of this is that you potentially save a lot of iterations between the different regions.

I would recommend having a look at OpenFOAM-1.6-ext and if you want the coupled matrix format I would recommend using this version of the code. In principal it could be possible to transfer all the necessary code to OF 2.1 but this requires quite a lot of tedious work and I would not recommend it. Do you have any 2.1 specific code that you need to use?

I hope this information could help you.

Best regards,

Hey, how does it look like with transfer of conjugateHeatFoam to OpenFoam 2.2.2 ?
Version 2.2.2 does incorporate block matrix libraries and tools?
