Hi everybody,
I m having a hard Time to find the Problem that make OpenFOAM stop simulating my konvektion with chtMultiRegionFoam. It seems that the Problem have something with calcutating h in the Air. That makes my Simulation unstabil. // * * * * * * * * * * * * * Code:

Greetings mbay101,
I noticed that you've asked a related question here: http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...tml#post443898 post #27 OK, there isn't much information to work with here. The only thing I'm able to see is that your temperature ranges are all over the place  just look at the last few iterations: Quote:
Please provide more information about your case, as explained here: http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...gethelp.html Best regards, Bruno

Hi wyldckat,
thank you for offering your Help. I solve the Problem but im not satisfied with my solution and to be frank with you I don t quite understand it . After I saw that my solution is very unstabil, I started to change variable in my case and I had succes when i increase the value of mu in thermophsicalProperties. The Problem is that I m trying to simulate the Air and when i use 1,87e01 insteed of 1,87e05 that change the velocity of the Air in my Geometrie Re = L.w/nu with nu is kinematic viscosity. Do you have any idea why is my case working only with high kinematic viscosity. Best regards,

By the way,
sorry if i didn t follow http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...gethelp.html to explain my problem. This Problem is not case relevant. I always get the same problem with diffrent cases. I made a case to describe the situation. Here I tried to simulate a worm Solid in Air (free Konvektion) laminar flow. I mesh my geometry with salome and checkMesh look very good and i never got i problem with the Mesh. I use chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam and i took the system Files from the tutorial (fvScheme, fvSolution and controlDic) I tried to simulate the cases with laminar or turbulent kEpsilon Modell. both ways i needed to increase the viscosity nu to get the case working. how dose that effect my air velocity? or anything else in my case. thank you for any help

Sorry I forgot the case!!
OUT is the Air boundary for the limit of the Region. I can use also wall, but it dosen t seems that big of a diffrence between empty and wall with fixedValue (0 0 0) in U. Thank you again.

Hi mbay101,
Well, if you increase the viscosity 1000x, then it acts more like a heavy liquid or like honey or something like that, which turns the flow into something very laminar and with a good+nice heat flow. Given that your case seems to be only one solid and one fluid region, I suggest that you try to work based on this simplified multiregion case (has two fluid regions and one solid): http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ge...__planeWall2D The suggestion is to:

Hi Bruno,
thank you for replying. I will try your Suggestion. Another question: I always bring my Source Heat in the system by giving a fixedValue Temprature on a surface. I would Like to insert now a Heat Flux. can you show me how the Code looks like in OpenFOAM 2.2.0? Inlet_HeatFlux { type compressible::turbulentHeatFluxTemperature; heatSource flux; q uniform 17; kappa solidThermo; kappaName none; value uniform 297; } but this way i can t see any Temperature getting in my System what m i missing here?

Quick answer: I think what you are looking for is this: http://foam.sourceforge.net/docs/cpp...8.html#details
I found it through the modules section, under the "Wall boundary Conditions" subsection: http://www.openfoam.org/version2.2.0/documentation.php

Hi Bruno,
I also have a "Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&)" error appearing when I run my case. However I'm not able to run even one time step. I have a modified heatTransfer solver that uses a user_defined BC for two of the four boundaries in the geometry. blockMesh compiles well. I am running a laminar case and so I've turned turbulence off in the RASproperties. However I get the following when I execute the solver. Code:

How do i rectify it? 3. What does the line #0 mean in the error?

I am able to see that the the solver is not able to access libfiniteVolume.so and libincompressibleRASModels.so for some reason there by not being able to use fvSchemes properly.
Otherwise, I'm not able to make any headway with the above error. Any idea anyone?

Hi Srivaths,
The stack trace is that last part of the output you're seeing, which starts with the #0, down to whichever is the last # number. It gives you a trace of the subroutine call history, which lead to the current crash. The history is in reverse, namely, the first event was #10 and crashed somewhere near #0. So, if we look from #0 to #10, here's what they mean: Code:
#0 Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/opt/openfoam222/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/libOpenFOAM.so" Code:
#1 Foam::sigSegv::sigHandler(int) in "/opt/openfoam222/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/libOpenFOAM.so" This is the reason why printStack was called. Code:
#2 Uninterpreted: Code:
#3 Foam::fv::gaussGrad<Foam::Vector<double> >::correctBoundaryConditions(Foam::GeometricField<Foam::Vector<double>, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::GeometricField<Foam::Tensor<double>, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>&) in "/opt/openfoam222/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" This one "corrects boundary conditions", which is why it's called correctBoundaryConditions Code:
#4 Foam::fv::gaussGrad<Foam::Vector<double> >::calcGrad(Foam::GeometricField<Foam::Vector<double>, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> const&, Foam::word const&) const in "/opt/openfoam222/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/libfiniteVolume.so" Code:

Code:
#8 in "/home/srivathsan/OpenFOAM/srivathsan2.2.2/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/bin/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoamTemp" Code:
#9 __libc_start_main in "/lib/i386linuxgnu/libc.so.6" Code:
#10 in "/home/srivathsan/OpenFOAM/srivathsan2.2.2/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/bin/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoamTemp" As for the solution? I don't know. You haven't provided the specific boundary conditions (and initial field values) you're using, nor did you indicate the configurations you have in "fvSchemes" and "fvSolution". Nor did you give the equation you've added to the solver (and where exactly you added it), so I have no clue if there is something wrong in it. Therefore, all I can do is guess... and my guess is that there is a value or field being initiated with 0... although this would lead to a SIGFPE, and not a SIGSEGV ... Best regards, Bruno

Hi Bruno,
Thank you so much for that very detailed post . There were few lines which I couldn't understand in the error but you've explained them all. I have only renamed the solver that way with my own boundary condition for a particular patch. However, I have my RASproperties file reading laminar and I've just kept the default setting for the fields k, epsilon etc. Let me take a while to go back to my case and see if I've missed anything. Thanks a ton, again!

Hi,
I've had a look at my case to find out the source of the error and correct it, but I'm not able to. The following are my fvSchemes and fvSolutions files. About the case: Its a modified buoyant solver with my boundary condition for a free surface in the geometry. I've kept the RASproperties file set to laminar and have retained the default settings in the fvSchemes and fvSolutions folder. I'm sure I'm missing something really simple, but what is it? fvSchemes Code:
FoamFile { version 2.0; format ascii; class dictionary; location "system"; object fvSchemes; } // * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * // ddtSchemes { default steadyState; } gradSchemes { default Gauss linear; } divSchemes { default none; div(phi,U) bounded Gauss upwind; div(phi,T) bounded Gauss upwind; div(phi,k) bounded Gauss upwind; div(phi,epsilon) bounded Gauss upwind; div((nuEff*dev(T(grad(U))))) Gauss linear; } laplacianSchemes { default none; laplacian(nuEff,U) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(Dp,p_rgh) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(alphaEff,T) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DREff,R) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DkEff,k) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DepsilonEff,epsilon) Gauss linear corrected; laplacian(DREff,R) Gauss linear corrected; } interpolationSchemes { default linear; } snGradSchemes { default corrected; } fluxRequired { default no; p_rgh ; } Code:

Hi Srivaths,
OK, I've given a quick read to your description and it's still not enough information I'm guessing here, but I think the problem is related to your custom boundary condition. Have a look at the following page: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/HowTo_debugging Best regards, Bruno
