Hi all, I am a new user to using OpenFOAM, and I am currently trying out potentialFoam with a shiphull application.

Below is the file for blockMesh

I am able to run blockMesh command without any issue, however, as i am running -writePhi -writep, it states

-writePhi: command not found


Anyone that can help me with this issue?

I am not 100% sure what the writePhi writep command is supposed to do but in OF 3.0.1 which I am using you simply type potentialFoam to run it.
What version are you using? Have you included the setting for potentialFoam in your fvSolution?

Cheers
Alex

Hi Kina,

I am using version 2.4, but with 2.3.x files for running of potentialFoam.

Yes, I did input potentialFoam in fvSolutions file.

So the command:
Code:
potentialFoam -writep
Also doesn't work?

#!/bin/sh
cd ${0%/*} || exit 1 # Run from this directory

# Source tutorial run functions
. $WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/tools/RunFunctions

application=`getApplication`

cp -r 0.org 0 > /dev/null 2>&1
runApplication blockMesh
runApplication $application -writePhi -writep
runApplication streamFunction

# ----------------------------------------------------------------- end-of-file

I ran blockMesh, then -writePhi -writep, and this is where I got stuck at
