 May 31, 2012, 08:11 adding div(phi) #1 New Member   Nabil MEAH Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 7 Sponsored Links Hello everybody, I'm currently working on the implementation of the some equations within the twoLiquidMixingFoam solver and I am facing some trouble when I try to add (in bold) an extra term in this transport equation : fvScalarMatrix fracVolLVEqn ( fvm::ddt(fracVolLV) + fvm::div(phi, fracVolLV) - fvm::laplacian ( Dab + alphatab*turbulence->nut(), fracVolLV, "laplacian(Dab,fracVolLV)" ) == fvm::div(phi, fracVolTot) ); fracVolLVEqn.solve(); (fracVolLV =alpha1 (volumetric fraction of liquid) + alpha2 (volumetric fraction of vapor) fracVolTot=alpha1 + alpha2+ alpha3 (volumetric fraction of air) ) equal to 1 When I compile, I don't have any errors however when I run the program I have the following error message : --> FOAM FATAL ERROR: incompatible fields for operation [fracVolLV] == [fracVolTot] Does anyone know how can I solve the problem ? Thank you for the help,

But I'm confused about using an explicit resolution for this term whereas the other terms are resolved implicitly.

If you use fvm, the solver will see fracVolLV and fracVolTot as solution variables which cannot work. __________________ *On twitter @akidTwit *Spend as much time formulating your questions as you expect people to spend on their answer.
