Hi Everyone,

So I am customising a solver adapted from simpleFoam and I am trying to compile it to see if it works.

I used wmake in the solver's root directory to attempt to compile it.

Question : Must my solver be placed in OpenFOAM\applications or it can be anywhere on my hdd?

I am receiving errors during compilation but I cannot figure where or what the problem is according to the error.

Code:
SOURCE=MySolver.C ;  g++ -m32 -Dlinux -DWM_DP -Wall -Wextra -Wno-unused-parameter -Wold-style-cast -O3  -DNoRepository -ftemplate-depth-100 -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/finiteVolume/lnInclude -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/turbulenceModels -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/turbulenceModels/incompressible/RAS/RASModel -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/transportModels -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/transportModels/incompressible/singlePhaseTransportModel -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/meshTools/lnInclude -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/fvOptions/lnInclude -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/sampling/lnInclude -IlnInclude -I. -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude -I/home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/src/OSspecific/POSIX/lnInclude   -fPIC -c $SOURCE -o Make/linuxGccDPOpt/MySolver.o
MySolver.C:36:46: fatal error: incompressible/RASModel/RASModel.H: No such file or directory
 #include "incompressible/RASModel/RASModel.H"
                                              ^
compilation terminated.
make: *** [Make/linuxGccDPOpt/MySolver.o] Error 1
According to the error code, it says RASModel.H does not exist, but I did a search in OpenFoam/src/turbulenceModels/incompressible/RAS/RASModel/ , and RASModel.H is indeed sitting there. I am not sure why wmake is trying to find RASModel.H in .../incompressible/RASModel/, so I checked my Make/files and Make/options, but it seems to be correct?

Code:
MySolver.C

EXE = $(FOAM_APPBIN)/MySolver
Code:
EXE_INC = \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/finiteVolume/lnInclude \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/turbulenceModels \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/turbulenceModels/incompressible/RAS/RASModel \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/transportModels \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/transportModels/incompressible/singlePhaseTransportModel \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/meshTools/lnInclude \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/fvOptions/lnInclude \
    -I$(LIB_SRC)/sampling/lnInclude


EXE_LIBS = \
    -lincompressibleRASModels \
    -lincompressibleTurbulenceModel \
    -lincompressibleTransportModels \
    -lfiniteVolume \
    -lmeshTools \
    -lfvOptions \
    -llduSolvers \
    -lsampling

Could someone help out here please? Thanks.

Hello hwsv07,

No, you can put your solver anywhere on your HDD. To do so, just modify your MAKE/file as:

Code:
mySolver.C

EXE = $(FOAM_USER_APPBIN)/MySolver
Concerning you compiling error, have you tried to write simply
Code:
#include "RASModel.H"
instead of

Code:
#include "incompressible/RASModel/RASModel.H"
Not sure about the error, but it should work just with RASModel.H as include....


Cheers,
Marcel

Simple error,

as Sylv told you, you have to include the header files like that:
Code:
#include "FooBar.H"   // correct
#include "path/to/foobar.H" // wrong
Cheers

Thanks Tobi and Syvl.


I tried to compile again. But I now receive these errors:


Code:

   #include "readSIMPLEControls.H"
                                  ^
compilation terminated.
it seems like it is looking for readSIMPLEControls.H , initConvergenceCheck.H and convergenceCheck.H.

I am creating this solver out of a paper i read somewhere. apparently they were created in OF 1.5, but Im using the latest 2.3.0 now.

are these 3 H files not standard of OpenFoam? where can I get them and where should i place them?

Well exactly the same problem I am also facing

sclsVOFFoamsf.C:46:29: fatal error: turbulenceModel.H: No such file or directory
#include "turbulenceModel.H"
^
compilation terminated.
make: *** [/home/mayank/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/solvers/multiphase/sclsVOFFoamsf/sclsVOFFoamsf.o] Error 1


i can see turbulenceModel.H header file present in the src

You should also check the Make/options to see what lnInclude folders are included. I think the turbulenceModel.H has a name collision, so you might have to include "compressible/turbulenceModel.H" or "incompressible/turbulenceModel.H"

Hello,
I've an analogous problem when I compile my code. In this regard, I don't face this problem if I source/use OpenFoam 2.3.0. While I get it if I refer to an older version (OpenFoam 4.x i.e.).
The error is the following one:

ABLkEpsilonMarker.H:70:22: fatal error: RASModel.H: No such file or directory
#include "RASModel.H"

Indeed I found the RASModel.H file in the directory "OpenFOAM-4.x/src/TurbulenceModels/turbulenceModels/RAS/RASModel/" . Do you have any idea on the reason of this error and any suggestion on how I could solve it?

You have to tell the compile the path in which it should search for the file. The path is easy to figure out by using
Code:
find -iname "RASModel.H"
Tha appropriate location has to be added to the options file.

I think the newer versions of OpenFOAM have done away with hard-coded RASModel.H/LESModel.H in lieu of "turbulentTransportModel.H"

As an example, compare line number 39 of multiphaseEulerFoam.C b/w OF2.3 and OF4

OF2.3:
Code:
 #include "LESModel.H"
OF4.x:
Code:
#include "turbulentTransportModel.H"

How you will get your library ready is up to you and is related to the functionality you are going to build. However, I agree to use the appropriate format which is used in the current version one is using. As one can see with the turbulentTransportModel.H header, all the other classes are included; Doxygen is your friend (here Foam-dev). So by using the way Anurag is mentioning, you should solve your problem but you also can just include the RASModel.H. At the end it does not matter which way you go. The only important thing is, that you tell your compiler everything that it needs.

Thank you for your kind replies. They were extremely useful. I have to say I'm still struggling with the OpenFOAM learning process and there is a lot I don't know and I don't properly understand.
Giving a look to the different version OF folders, in 2.3.0 the RASModel.H file is located in "turbulenceModels/incompressible/RAS/RASModel". While in the most recent ones it's located in "TurbulenceModels/turbulenceModels/RAS/RASModel". Thus, I don't know how this could affect the overall code structure (considering it is quite complicated and it was written for 2.3.0 version and I would like to run it into 4.x) and how to account for incompressibility when dealing with more recent version of OpenFOAM.
