Hi,

I am attempting to cobble together chtmultiregionfoam and sprayFoam in order to run some CHT simulations with spray parcels. I have encountered some issues regarding the combustion model and pointers. My c++ is limited and as such I am out of ideas on what to do.

In my createFluidFields.H file I have initialised the combustion pointer list as follows:
Code:
PtrList<combustionModels::psiCombustionModel> combustion(fluidRegions.size());
I have then set the combustion model:
Code:
      combustion.set
      (
    i,
       combustionModels::psiCombustionModel::New
       (
     fluidRegions[i]
     )
       );
In EEqn.H and the other solver files, the combustion term in the equations is
Code:
combustion->Sh()
When I try to compile I get an error like this:
Code:
error: base operand of ‘->’ has non-pointer type ‘Foam::PtrList<Foam::combustionModels::psiCombustionModel>’
Please could someone advise on what I can do to resolve this.

Many thanks,

Riyaz.

I managed to fix the problem. I had incorrectly referenced what I had defined in setRegionFluidFields.H

Although I have run into another problem regarding the SprayCloud:
The errors I get are:
Code:
undefined reference to `typeinfo for Foam::sprayCloud'

undefined reference to `Foam::sprayCloud::typeName'
The spray bits of createFluidFields.H are
Code:
PtrList<basicSprayCloud> parcelsFluid(fluidRegions.size());


//Spray Source
    Info<< "    Adding to parcelsFluid\n" << endl;
    parcelsFluid.set
    (
      i,
     new basicSprayCloud
     (
       "sprayCloud",
      rhoFluid[i],
      UFluid[i],
      gFluid[i],
      thermoFluid[i]
      )
     );
and in setRegionFluidFields.H

Code:
basicSprayCloud& parcels = parcelsFluid[i];
When I look in the src for sprayCloud and basicSprayCloud , it does not indicate that the way I have defined the spray is incorrect. The only reason I can think of is the way in which my Pointers are initiated.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Many thanks,

Riyaz
