Hi All!

I am to add the combustion into the multi region solver and I have few problems connected with this. The main idea was to use the approach from different solvers (reactingFoam fireFoam ) into chtMultiRegionFoam.
I tried to add the combustion library into transport equation just by adding :
fvScalarMatrix hEqn
fvm::ddt(rho, h)
+ fvm::div(phi, h)
- fvm::laplacian(turb.alphaEff(), h)
- (fvc::ddt(rho, K) + fvc::div(phi, K))
+ combustion->Sh()
+ rad.Sh(thermo)

This however always turns out the error:

fluid/hEqn.H:10:9: error: ‘combustion’ was not declared in this scope
+ combustion->Sh()

This means that the function "combustion" is not understandable for the program so it has to be somehow initialise. I done it by simply adding
#include "psiChemistryCombustionModel.H"
into main .C file but it does not fix the problem.

And here is the question - probably very simple - where can I find the function "combustion" within OpenFoam libraries? And why it is not psiChemistryCombustionModel.H ?

Can anybody of you help?

Have you declared a combustion model variable? Have a look in createFields.H and you will see that combustion is a pointer to the combustion model, so that combustion is not a function but an object and you are trying to access the member function of an object that hasn't been declared.
