|0002977||OpenFOAM||[All Projects] Bug||public||2018-06-11 10:05||2018-06-11 11:04|

|Summary||0002977: force coefficients not printed|
I am solving for a potential flow around an airfoil. I use the potentialFOAM solver and compute the flow.
When I try to compute the force coefficients, it runs but doesn't produce the force coefficient result. I have following things in my controlDict file and the force coefficients files:
liftDir (0 0 1);
dragDir (1 0 0);
CofR (0.72 0 0);
pitchAxis (0 1 0);
Earlier I thought, it wasn't reading the pressure and velocity values, so I had it in the file, but it doesn't help. Here is a part of the log file.

Reading velocity field U
Constructing pressure field p
Constructing velocity potential field Phi
No MRF models present

Currently the forces and forceCoeffs functionObjects are not setup to operate on a potential solution. There is also an issue with time execution because the potential solver does not increment time but if you run
postProcess -fields "(p U)"
you will see the fundamental problem
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
No valid model for viscous stress calculation
From function Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<Foam::SymmTensor<double>, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> > Foam::functionObjects::forces::devRhoReff() const

Thank you. I had a doubt it might not work for potential flow.
So, is there a work around for this problem?
|You will need to write a version of the forceCoeffs functionObject which operates on a potential solution.|
