OF 2.2.0 Ubuntu 12.10 missing solver
After fresh install of 2.2.0 I noticed there is no bubbleFoam solver.
See below the differences between the 2.1.1 and 2.2.0 installs.
Is it a problem on my end or with the distro?
Can someone confirm?
/opt$ find -name bubble*
I'm guessing you haven't read the release notes: http://www.openfoam.org/version2.2.0/index.php ;)
This was part of a generalization they've made on all solvers: http://www.openfoam.org/version2.2.0/fvOptions.php
In theory, we can now take advantage of several features that previously only existed for some dedicated and hard-coded solvers.
I had read through these, however I'm not sure I understand.
How does bubbleFoam get replace by more general cases?
Is the new method to use fvOptions with something like twoPhaseEulerFoam and include semiImplicitSource/codedSource for Drag/Lift/Virtual Mass source terms?
:eek: Sorry about that, I didn't look with enough attention into this... I simply looked at the question and it seemed all too similar to recent questions on the same topic: "where did X solver go?"
You seem to be already well ahead of me on this one... nonetheless, a quick search lead me to this very detailed page: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/BubbleFoam
My first instinct is to run the "./multiphase/twoPhaseEulerFoam/bubbleColumn" tutorials in both 2.1.x and 2.2.x, as well as comparing the results with "./multiphase/bubbleFoam/bubbleColumn" from 2.1.x.
If there was no conclusion from the results, then the next steps for me would be:
And that's all I know :(
Good luck! Best regards,
PS: I've taken the liberty to move this thread from the "OpenFOAM Installation" sub-forum to the main "OpenFOAM" forum, given that this isn't a specific installation problem ;)
Just to close this thread.
bubbleFoam is dropped in favour of twoPhaseEulerFoam for OF 2.2.0.
