Hello,

I am working on the simulation of combustion inside an oven. I use chtMultiRegionFoam but I have problems trying to integrate the combustion into my fluid region. I took the same files and conditions as the SmallPoolFire3D tutorial.

I find myself with this error:

Has anyone ever come across this problem? Can I try to integrate the combustion into chtMultiRegionFoam without having to recreate a new application?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Hello Quentin,

As far as I know, combustion isn't implemented in chtMultiRegionFoam.
Have a look at this thread : Can chtMultiRegionFoam do combustion, radiation and buoyancy?

About your error, the interesting part is here :

Code:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: 

    request for volScalarField ph_rgh from objectRegistry Air failed
The solver is looking for a variable named "ph_rgh" in the "Air" region and it seems it cannot find it.
Since you started from the smallPoolFire3D, the need for ph_rgh is probably related to the "prghTotalHydrostaticPressure" boundary condition for p_rgh.

First thing is to check your boundary conditions to see if you have the appropriate "ph_rgh" file in the right directory. (or modify your boundary conditions accordingly)

Hello Yann,

Thank you for your quick reply.

My variable "ph_rgh" is in the good folder "0". At the level of my "p_rgh", "prghTotalHydrostaticPressure" is the boundary condition that I use.

There may be some changes to be made in terms of fvSchemes or fvSolution?

It's not easy to help you without more information.
The ph_rgh file should be located in 0/Air/ph_rgh or if running in parallel : processorN/Air/ph_rgh.


Can you post a log file showing the error and if possible a minimal case with your setup and a run script to reproduce what you do?

Firefoam has a ph_rgh equation that's called as the silver spins up to computd a ph_rgh field that is then used by the accompanying boundary condition. If it is not computed (which it clearly is not here, hence the error), the boundary condition will return an error.
