Hi all,

So, I have upgraded my OpenFOAM to 3.0.0 and I cannot find any way how to set the dummy turbulent model whilst using the simple loop (using one of the heat transfer apps). Any ideas how to do it? Current turbulenceProperties file is as:

FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
location "constant";
object RASProperties;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

simulationType laminar;

RAS
{
// Tested with kEpsilon, realizableKE, kOmega, kOmegaSST, v2f,
// ShihQuadraticKE, LienCubicKE.
RASModel laminar;

turbulence on;

printCoeffs on;
}

All I am getting is a big fat error.

This is what I'm searching, too.
Why there is no laminar dummy model!?

It doesn't even react to elimination of the "simulationType" keyword.

I believe it was a bug in the code that was causing this issue. I had reported it, and it was fixed in OpenFOAM-3.0.x. You may have to download 3.0.x version or fix the bug in the current 3.0.0 version. It is a simple fix anyway.

In the new version openfoam3.0.1, I tried,

simulationType RAS;
RAS
{
RASModel laminar;
turbulence on;
printCoeffs on;
}

but its not working. Instead, " simulationType laminar; " is working !!!!

Thank you
