Hi,
I simulate the watergas two phase using interFoam. But i have a error message when run interFoam. I don't understand the error. Code:

clearly your boundary conditions are to be blamed. this occurs usually bcz of 2 reasons
1. compile a solver for openfoam 2.4.0 in another openfoam say 4.0 so it compiles but its still isn't working correctly 2. when u give incorrect unphysical boundary conditions. hence the solution proceeds initially, but later the problem surfaces and solution is difficult to attain hence. your whole calculation is dumped i believe you haven't done first error but you have committed second one. so rectify your bc. thats it AND OH GOD. HOW COME YOUR deltaT is order of 10^67 ......total unphysical setup.....better upload your case files here

Thank you for your reply. I think my bc is ok, and I couldn't see any wrong in my case. I upload my case here. The polyMesh file should have be in constant file. But the file exceeds the forum's limit of 195.3KB. So I can't upload the ployMesh file. I can post the checkMesh here. Code:

sorry for late reply. i have been very busy i haven.t seen all of your files. i saw ur alpha files and i don;t get it why u using inletoutlet just use fixedvalue and use value 0 or 1 as per your phase. try this hopefuly it will work

hey i read you post!
i am still puzzled with your deta T = 10^67 ??? Its just not physical plz send me your case files : saddyhasan@gmail.com i'll reply in tomorrow or later.

i ran your case....i used openfoam v1612+
it was running like a charm without any problem

I change the boundary conditions, and try it again and again. It still does not work. There are always the same mistakes(Foam::error...). I'll study it again and find out the mistake. Best.

Hi,
I forgot to say that I used openfoam 3.0.0. Maybe it's a version problem?

one thing you can try
replace your fvsolution and fvschemes files with the ones in dambreak tutorial located in tutorials/multiphase/interfoam most probably it should work
