transportProperties-syntax in 1.6 (ramping)
Hi there,

I found the great interPhaseChangeFoam-tutorial done at Chalmers University and I tried using parts of it, especially the cavitational properties, but as always I wasn't lucky at all on this one: It was written in 1.5 and 1.6 doesn't seem to get the ramping part. Here's the code:

pSat pSat [1 -1 -2 0 0 0 0] -18000;
restart no;
rampN 200;
startN 1000;

I have no idea about what to do with this one as I didn't find anything about a ramping function in the OF-documentation or on this forum (besides exactly this part of the code). This doesn't help me as OpenFOAM completely seems to ignore the ramping function and I wonder if it's because of 1.6 or because of me (do I have to declare this function somewhere else?!).

I found out that there is no ramping function as a standard in OF, it was implemented in the "ooodlesInterPhaseChange"-solver by the Chalmers-people. Maybe this will help someone else.
