Summary0001539: Unable to derive a class from outletInletFvPatchField.C as "outletInletFvPatchScalarField"
DescriptionIf we copy-change the class "turbulentMixingLengthDissipationRateInlet" to create "turbulentMixingLengthDissipationRateOutlet", which derives from "outletInletFvPatchScalarField", it's will result in a compile error:

   outletInletFvPatchField.C:129:37: error: no matching function for call to ‘pos(const Foam::fvsPatchField<double>&)’

The reason for this can be seen if we compare the source codes from each original parent classes:

 - inletOutletFvPatchField:

    const Field<scalar>& phip =
        this->patch().template lookupPatchField<surfaceScalarField, scalar>

 - outletInletFvPatchField:

    const fvsPatchField<scalar>& phip =
        this->patch().template lookupPatchField<surfaceScalarField, scalar>

If we change "fvsPatchField" to "Field" in "outletInletFvPatchField.C", it works fine:

--- a/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/outletInlet/outletInletFvPatchField.C
+++ b/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/outletInlet/outletInletFvPatchField.C
@@ -120,7 +120,7 @@ void Foam::outletInletFvPatchField<Type>::updateCoeffs()
- const fvsPatchField<scalar>& phip =
+ const Field<scalar>& phip =
         this->patch().template lookupPatchField<surfaceScalarField, scalar>
Steps To ReproduceAttached is the source code ready for testing. Unpack and run "wmake libso" on it to trigger the error.
Additional InformationThis first happened to us around 19 months ago and only today was I able to double-check if this still occurs, how and why.

The provided example class might not make much sense, since there are other ways to get similar results, but still, it's a bug we (accidentally) managed to trigger.

There are two possible solutions: either a reference to Field rather than fvsPatchField is used or fvsPatchField.H in included so that the pos function is known. For consistency with inletOutlet I have changed outletInlet to use Field as you propose.
