Hi Foamers,

It is few months since I have started dealing with OpenFOAM and of course i seldom run into multiple errors that i can usually takle also looking at the threads in this forum. This time i cannot manage to solve my problem.

In particular I am working on a problem that is very similar to the tutorial that you find in combustion/reactingFoam/counterFlowFlame2D. I am running the OpenFOAM v1912 version.

If i run the simulation as it is, everything works properly, however if i switch off the combustion by simply acting on the combustionProperties file:

active  false;


// **********************************************************//
when i run the reactingFoam solver, the simulation is stuck at the selection of the combustion model... and the terminal freezes with this lines

Reading/calculating face flux field phi

Creating turbulence model.

Selecting turbulence model type laminar
Selecting laminar stress model Stokes
Creating reaction model

Selecting combustion model noCombustion
Of course, i have left unaltered all of the other files in the 0, constant and system directories.
Can you help me understanding what is going on?

Tobermory will become famous soon enough
Try "none" instead of "noCombustion" - that seems to work fine for me.

Question: how do results, CPU run time and speed of convergence of rhoReactingFoam and reactingFoam differ for the test case considered? Thx.

nocombustion, reactingfoam
