Hi all,
I'm trying to learn fireFOAM and i've seen that you asked several questions about it so I assume you already learned it

My problem is: I tried to start tutorial smallPoolFire2D. I created mesh and type fireFoam. After some time I got this result (2 sec, temperature):



As you can see, teperature didn't change. I wanted result like this:



which is taken from presentation by FM Global - google doc

Can you please tell me where is problem?

Thank you very much.

Darku

Hellow Darku,
I had faced similar problem, but after some trial and error finally i found the solution.
Just check out the "Allrun" file in the "smallpoolfire2D" tutorial case folder. and run all the command . It should give you the temperature rise.

Happy FOAMing

run these commands
$blockMesh
$topoSet
$createPatch -overwrite
$fireFoam
even i am new to OpenFoam and i dnt know what the 2nd and 3rd command do, but it run the tutorial properly.
If anybody can explain it , that will be great help.

topoSet - "operates on cellSets/faceSets/pointSets through a dictionary." It can be used to create zones inside the mesh that could be used to split the mesh into regions or assign different properties on each zone. https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/TopoSet

createPatch - "Utility to create patches out of selected boundary faces. Faces come either from existing patches or from a faceSet." I think it says it all https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/CreatePatch

Hi , sorry, I'm trying to use the smallPoolFire3D solver to simulate a fire in the tunnel. I thought the blockMeshDict file that originated the cube was the heat puddle from which the fire came out and then I put the heat puddle cube inside the tunnel. Now I have doubts, which may sound stupid, but I'm having some problems so I'm trying out all the options, although I do not think, that I should put the tunnel inside the cube created with the blockMeshDict file because it represents the maximum domain of the problem. You can help me?

Thank you, kind regards, Luca.

Hi Luca,

if I understood correctly, you have some large domain and inside it there is small puddle which is on fire. As mantioned by jmdf and meenu_1, you can use topoSetDict. This allows to create new area (boundary) with different settings - see smallPoolFire3D/system/topoSetDict. With this you can create 2D "box" and in createPatchDict you name it like it is ordinary boundary. Then you set all variables in 0 folder for this new boundary.

Hope it will help.

Hello Darku, thanks for the answer ,
yes, exactly, I'm trying to simulate a fire in a tunnel.Yes I added to the files in folder 0 the information on this new boundary. I created the external mesh (just the edge) with solidworks in .stl format and I put the cube representing the heat puddle inside. My question is: does the heat puddle be placed in the tunnel, or do I have to enlarge the cube of the heat puddle and put the tunnel inside the cube? I have some doubts about topoSetDict and createPatchDict. Can you help me?
