I am confusing about the source term implementation. I have a fixed value source term (suppose 100) and want to use it in a diffusive equation. I have implemented as follows:

volScalarField SS=100

But the compiler does not accept this syntax. Can anyone please help me?

diegon is on a distinguished road
You just need to put "100" in the rhs of the equation without creating a new vol field that cannot be initialized in the way you are doing.

Thanks for your suggestion. If I follow like you, the equation would be:

I have modified my code and finally compiled the code without any error. I have defined my source term as dimensionedScalar, then I have implemented the source term like following:

fvScalarMatrix UEqn
solve(UEqn ==-fvm::Sp(source, T)) // T is variable

The solution that I got from this equation is terrible. Could some one please tell me, what's wrong I have done?
