 October 15, 2011, 03:58 the problem about dimension #1 Member   bojiezhang Join Date: Jan 2010 Posts: 64 Rep Power: 9 Sponsored Links hello everyFoamer: I have two problems, and hope someone can help me, 1：when I use the function below: Foam::cos( -omega*runTime.value()) the dimension of omega is[0,0,-1,0,0,0,0]， It can compile pretty well, but when caculating, the error comes as below: ds not dimensionless From function cos(const dimensionedScalar& ds) 2：when I assign the value as below: mass[cellI] =A*omega*Foam::cos(-omega*runTime.value()); mass is volScalarField , and intialized as dimensionedScalar("zero", dimensionSet(0,1,-1,0,0,0,0), 0.0) the dimension of A is [0,1,0,0,0,0,0]，the dimension of omega is[0,0,-1,0,0,0,0]， when compiled , it shows "error"：can not convert dimensioned to double ; what can I do , I really hope someone can give me some advice, thank you in advance! bojiezhang
