Hello guys, I'm relatively new to OpenFoam and I've a small doubt as follows,

There is steady state solver for coal combustion in ESI's OF ver 16.x which I want to add to 4.x version of OpenFoam foundation version which I generally use.

What is the easiest way possible?

Well I have not checked for its alternative in OpenFOAM 4.x, but you can copy it in this way:
1. Go to the folder and in the terminal run
Code:
> foamNewApp <myApp>
2. It will create a new folder <myApp> with Make directory and <myApp>.C.
3. Copy all the contents of your app into that folder and change all the names of your app to <myApp>. Generally I add "my" to the name of the app. This helps me in keeping new files apps boundary conditions differentiated.
4. Open Make/files and verify that the <myApp>.C matches the name <myApp>.C
5. Here comes the tough part, linking the libraries. You can copy and replace the Make/options from original source to <myApp>/Make directories.
6. run wmake command in <myApp> directory from terminal
Code:
myApp> wmake
and it will compile.
If it doesn't, then perhaps it needs some more head breaking regarding the Make/options because there may be some library mismatch.

Thanks for the reply! Actually, after posting this I tried to create a new solver using the code I copied from other version. Turns out your prediction was right, the linkage of libraries is major headache. I'll try to do it as far as my patience goes....
