Hello, I'm stumbling across

I'm stumbling across the same error.
I think that it has to do with a missing volScalarField, but I have no idea how to register this field in the objectRegistry.
Anybody knows what to do to get the fixedFluxPressure boundary condition running with (simple)Foam?

Declare a field called 'rUA' i
Declare a field called 'rUA' in createFields.H, like this:

volScalarField rUA
dimensionedScalar("rUA", dimTime, 1),

And call:

rUA = 1.0/UEqn.A();

inside the PISO loop.

Hello Sandeep,

thank you for your help, this works.
Just foor the books: a little typo occured in the last equation which should read

rUA = 1.0/UEqn().A()

I put this in pEqn.H
