Hello Foamers,

solidificationMeltingSource generates a field \<name\>:alpha1 (where \<name\> is the source name) to represent the liquid fraction. However, Paraview is completely oblivious to this field:

Code:
/*--------------------------------*- C++ -*----------------------------------*\
| =========                 |                                                 |
| \\      /  F ield         | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox           |
|  \\    /   O peration     | Version:  3.0.0                                 |
|   \\  /    A nd           | Web:      www.OpenFOAM.org                      |
|    \\/     M anipulation  |                                                 |
\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
    version     2.0;
    format      ascii;
    class       volScalarField;
    object      melt1:alpha1;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

dimensions      [0 0 0 0 0 0 0];

internalField   uniform 0;

boundaryField
{
    "(walls|minZ|maxZ)"
    {
        type            zeroGradient;
    }
}


// ************************************************************************* //
The filename is 0/melt1:alpha1 containing the boundary and initial condition definition, which Paraview simply ignores. Is this a bug?

Thanks,

Bruno

Did you meanwhile fix this? My suspicion is at least on Windows the colon in the file names causes the problem, but I haven't had time to verify this let alone try a fix...
