Default problems with pow(scalar, double)

Hi Foamers,

i got a problem with the mathcalls.h especially with the pow() funktion.
In my case I need a pow(scalar, double) function:

scalar area1 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[0]);//Fläche des Pätches inlet
scalar sumFieldp0 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[0]*p.boundaryField()[0]) / area1;

scalar area2 = gSum(mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1]);//Fläche eines Pätches outlets
scalar sumFieldp1 = gSum( mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1] * p.boundaryField()[1] ) / area2;

//Temperatur eines Pätches outlets
scalar Temp2 = gSum( mesh.magSf().boundaryField()[1] * T.boundaryField()[1] ) / area2;

scalar sumField = sumFieldp0 + sumFieldp1;
scalar Gaskonstante = 259.8;//Gaskonstante Luft = 259.8
scalar X = pow(sumField, 0.4);

buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam_alphak.C: In function 'int main(int, char**)':
buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam_alphak.C:103: error: call of overloaded 'pow(Foam::scalar&, double)' is ambiguous
/usr/include/bits/mathcalls.h:154: note: candidates are: double pow(double, double)

The errror seems clear, the pow-function with a scalar and double. But how can I solve it?

Hi Sven,

Let me suggest you something. Replace the line :

scalar X = pow(sumField, 0.4);


scalar X = Foam::pow(sumField, 0.4);

Fixed my problem too thank you! But I'm a little confused. Does this mean that there are other pow() functions outside of the Foam namespace that also take those parameter types (scalar, double)?
