Dear all,
When I run the case of wallFireSpread2D from fireFoam. The following errors appear. I am the beginner of openFoam. I suppose that the eddyDissipationModel<psiThermoCombustion,gasHTherm oPhysics> is not add in the lib. What should I do ?

Thanks very much in advance.

best regards
zhou

Quick questions:
  1. Which OpenFOAM version or fork are you using?
  2. Which fireFoam version are you using?
  3. From where does your case "wallFireSpread2D" come from?

Dear Bruno,
Thanks very much for your answering. My Openfoam is 2.2.x. firefoam version is firefoam-dev. The wallFireSpread2D is from https://github.com/fireFoam-dev/fireFoam-dev .

Thanks very much in advance.

Hi Burno, Thanks. Yesterday, I re-install the OpenFOAM-2.2.X and fireFoam according to the following links: https://github.com/fireFoam-dev/fireFoam-dev.
The detailed steps are followings:
cd ~ mkdir OpenFOAM cd OpenFOAM/ git clone https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x.git wget "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/foam/ThirdParty-2.2.2.tgz?use_mirror=mesh" -O ThirdParty-2.2.x.tgz tar -zxvf ThirdParty-2.2.x.tgz mv ThirdParty-2.2.2 ThirdParty-2.2.x rm -fr ThirdParty-2.2.x.tgz cd OpenFOAM-2.2.x/ source etc/bashrc export WM_NCOMPPROCS=8 export PATH=/usr/local/gcc-4.7.2/bin/:$PATH # enable readline support for setSet and add curses library # edit ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x/applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/setSet/Allwmake - export LINK_FLAGS="-lreadline" + export LINK_FLAGS="-lreadline -lcurses"
./Allwmake >& log.Allwmake &
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/fireFoam-dev/fireFoam-2.2.x.git cd fireFoam-2.2.x ./Allwmake >& log.Allwmake &

After installation, when I try the case WallFireSpread2D, the new problem come out :

I ran the this case without any problem in OpenFOAM-2.4.x. The error is due to you haven't run the geometry commands. Please run these commands before running the fireFoam command.

blockMesh

setSet -batch system/burner.setSet
setsToZones -noFlipMap
createPatch -overwrite


setSet -batch system/panel.setSet


extrudeToRegionMesh -overwrite


These commands creates the panelRegion/polyMesh in the constant folder.

These commands are already there in the case in the mesh.sh script. or you can directly run the run.sh script which will run the all commands.

Thanks

Hi,Manjunath .
Thanks very much for your help. Now, it works. Thanks. However, when I use paraview, the new problems come out:

Could you give me some suggestions? I am the beginner of OpenFOAM. I am sorry for troubling you.
Thanks again.

Hi,
Use the paraFoam command to see the results in paraview.

Thanks

Hi Zhou,
Sorry see the file IDefault file in the zero folder. which has to be like this

boundaryField
{

region0_to_panelRegion_panel
{
type greyDiffusiveRadiation;
T T;
emissivityMode solidRadiation; //solidThermo; //lookup;
// emissivity uniform 1.0;
value uniform 0;
}

".*"
{
type greyDiffusiveRadiation;
T T;
emissivityMode lookup; //solidThermo
emissivity uniform 1.0;
value uniform 0;
}
}

I think in that file some boundary condition is missing.

Thanks

Dear Zhou,

Hi, I am very new to OpenFOAM and fireFoam and now I am trying to run the fireFoam tutorial case: Singlebox, I face the same problem as shown:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Unknown psiCombustionModel type eddyDissipationModel<psiThermoCombustion,gasHTherm oPhysics>

Valid combustionModels are :

)

My openFoam version is 5.x and I reinstall the firefoam-dev use the same method as yours. But there is still the same error. It seems like firefoam have not be successfully installed, but I could run case with other combustion model.

So could you please help and tell me how to figure it out please? Thank you in advance!

Hi, The problem is your boundry condition. Please select the available combustion model. Sometimes, the model used in case is not included in the current version of firefoam.


If you still have question.

Please contact me.

Best regards
