ajaysingh83 is on a distinguished road
I am quite new to OpenFOAM. I wanted to see the effect of rotor in fuselage. I adopted the approach of Actuator Disk Modeling and took the help from Erik Svenning report and his code. I could compile the code with some modification and generate the executable. I am able to run the case with new executable but I am facing problem to write the data like pressure and velocity at certain probe location. If I use the simpleFoam (as its there in OpenFOAM) It writes the data but if I use my executable, it does not write the file. Can somebody please help me to resolve this problem. I am using the following function in controlDict file to write the data.

type forces;
functionObjectLibs ("");
outputControl timeStep;
outputInterval 10;
pName p;
UName U;
rhoName rhoInf;
log true;
rhoInf 1.205;
CofR (7.0358 0 1.6129); //momnet point
