DeadLee is on a distinguished road


freesteamPressure conditions are now defined as such:

type freestreamPressure;
freestreamValue $internalField;


I'm trying to run the below 2D wind turbine case, it was made in 2014 so I'm updating it for OF 2006. I've corrected quite a few errors due to version changes but I'm stuck on something that I think is easy to fix.


The full error:

PIMPLE: Operating solver in PISO mode

Reading field p

Entry 'freestreamValue' not found in dictionary "/home/lee/Documents/OpenFoam/01_tests/OpenFOAM-2D-VAWT-master/0/p.boundaryField.farfield"

file: /home/lee/Documents/OpenFoam/01_tests/OpenFOAM-2D-VAWT-master/0/p.boundaryField.farfield at line 31 to 32.

    From const Foam::entry& Foam::dictionary::lookupEntry(const Foam::word&, Foam::keyType::option) const
    in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 413.

I tried to give a value to the farfield, uniform 1 ; but it didn't work either so I commented it (it's not how it's supposed to work, but I'm just trying stuff).


dimensions      [0 2 -2 0 0 0 0];

internalField   uniform 0;

        type            zeroGradient;
        type            freestreamPressure;
        //value           uniform 1;    
        type            cyclicAMI;
        value           uniform 0;
        type            cyclicAMI;
        value           uniform 0;
        type            empty;
