Dear all
I am using reactingFoam for one of my flame simulations. But I dont know why it is not spitting out properties like viscosity as an output. The viscosity is a function of temperature from Sutherland law (used in this version of the solver). I posted a similar thread and found an answer from Dominic that I have to change in the createFields.H the "NO_WRITE" option to "AUTO_WRITE" to spit out the density . But there is no viscosity field there.
Could anyone PLEASE explain the reason why the viscosity is not spitting out in the output and if I can make a similar field for viscosity (like density) in the createFields.H to output the viscosity.
Your kind help is highly appreciated.
Thanks

Hello.
createFields.H is a header file. As I know You need to recompile your solver first.

Example thread:
How to compile a new solver in OpenFOAM-2.1.0?


Edit:
I'm sorry Aseikh Ahmed. English isn't my native language and I misunderstand Your question. I just thought You change it but viscosity still doesn't output.

Hello Oskar
Actually I recompiled the solver with the modification in createFields.H to include the rho in the output and its working fine. But my question is, can I do the same procedure as I did for rho to spit out the viscosity? Please enlighten me if I miss something.
