Dear All,

I am trying to implement an adjoint solver for external flow.

I have implemented the sensitivity. Now I would need to implement the normals to a certain patch, but - while coding - I get an error. My idea is to write something like

	forAll(mesh.boundary(), patchi)
	     if(mesh.boundary()[patchi].name() == "ciao")
	         forAll(normal, i)
	             normal[i] = mesh.boundary()[patchi].nf();
What's wrong with this code?

Thanks for help,

It is more difficult, when you are not telling, what the compiler complains about. But, the problem at least lies in line 9, where you assign a vector field to a single element in a vector field.


Please note that I do not use the Friend-feature, so do not be offended, if I do not accept a request.
