Hello everyone,
I would like to ask, has anyone succesfully used the immerse-boundary-conditions toolkit from prof. Jasak with rhoPimpleFoam?

I am trying to modify the solver following the SOLVER_COOKBOOK, however i guess that for compressible solvers there is some more work to do.
I solved all the error message I got until now, but then my solver starts and stop without error message in the first iteration, when it reaches the rhoEqn.H.

Note: I am using openfoam-ext4.0 and all the tutorials run smoothly.
Starting from the tutorial "PitzDailyTurbulentsimpleIbFoam" I did all the modifications to the case, and then run it with my new solver.

I guess my solver is even working correctly since compiles with no errors, but I may have some wrong setting in the case files (BCs, or controlDict)..

This is the output from the terminal:

Create time

Create mesh for time = 0
