Hi,

I am trying to add Will Bainbridge's massSource (https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-dev/commit/69e98dc28d1c5d6846f4c34ed5ee0918c7519f90) to the available sources in the fvOptions.

Therefore, I have:
  • added the line
    Code:
    $(derivedSources)/massSource/massSource.C
    to the src/fvOptions/Make/files file,

  • added the file massSource.C to the src/fvOptions/sources/derived/ directory,
  • added the file massSource.H to the src/fvOptions/sources/derived/ directory
Still, when I select massSource in the fvOptions, I am getting the error:
Code:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: 
  Unknown Model type massSource
Is there any other step I have missed out? It is my first time modifying OpenFOAM source code.
Does someone have experience with this new source type?

Turned out the problem had nothing to do with the new code itself. I simply did not compile it properly.
I am now able to use massSource as a source.

However, when I try to use it in one of the tutorial cases it is not giving the expected results. I have modified the multiphaseEulerFoam/injection case as shown at https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-dev/commit/69e98dc28d1c5d6846f4c34ed5ee0918c7519f90 but when I run the case and view the results in paraView there is no injection anymore.

Has anyone successfully used massSource?

Hi Lennart,

Did you ever come right with your issues, also what version of OpenFOAM did you manage to compile this library on?

Thanks in advance
