Dear OpenFOAM users.

I am using OpenFOam-1.5 I wanted to solve the transport equation for temperature variance for my research purpose. I have added Temperature equation and Trms equation in the simpleFoam code for the same purpose.( I have replaced buoyantSimpleRadiation code with SimpleFOam code since my original simpleFoam code is running with some other modifications in energy equation)

My TEqn.H file reads as

alphaEff = alpha + turbulence->nut()/Prt;

fvm::div(phi, T)
- fvm::laplacian(alphaEff, T)
eqnResidual() = solve(TEqn()).intialResidual();
maxResidual = max(eqnResidual, maxResidual);

My TrmsEqn.H file reads as

alphavariance = alpha + (0.13*(turbulence->k()*turbulence->k()/turbulence->epsilon()));

fvm::div(phi, Trms)
-fvm::laplacian(alphavariance, Trms)
+fvm::Sp(fvc::div(alphaEff, T), Trms)
eqnResidual = solve(TrmsEqn()).initialResidual();
maxResidual = max(eqnResidual, maxResidual);

On compilation i get following error

Ameya@Ameya:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/applications/solvers/heatTransfer/buoyantSimpleRadiatio nFoam> wclean

make: *** [Make/linuxGccDPOpt/buoyantSimpleRadiationFoam.o] Error 1

Any ideas on what the error actually means????
I know there is some mistake in the way in which the source term of Trms equation is written but i am not able to find out what and exactly how that term should be written. Can anyone please help me?????????
