|0003019||OpenFOAM||[All Projects] Bug||public||2018-08-01 23:59||2018-08-27 17:51|
|Platform||Linux||OS||Ubuntu||OS Version||18.04 LTS|
|Fixed in Version||6|
|Summary||0003019: OF 6 wallHeatFlux utility not working on chtMultiRegionFoam tutorials|
|Description||I was adapting one of my chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam cases from OF 5 to chtMultiRegionFoam on OF 6, the "simple" version of this solver has been deprecated since chtMultiRegionFoam can now run both steady and transient solutions. See this link: https://openfoam.org/release/6/ |
I ran into an error with the wallHeatFlux post process utility, so I moved to the multiRegionHeaterRadiation tutorial (which is similar to my case) and the error persisted. I was able to reproduce the error in all of the other chtMultiRegionFoam tutorials that I tried. I've been able to use the wallHeatFlux utility in this way in previous versions of openfoam which makes me think it's a bug, unless I'm missing something.
It seems there was a few modifications that was done to the wallHeatFlux utility in OF 6 which may have caused the error. volScalarField WallHeatFlux is no longer in the objectRegistry causing Openfoam to complain.
The error only occurs when you run the wall heatflux utility on a fluid region.
|Steps To Reproduce||1.) Navigate to the multiRegionHeaterRadiation tutorial.|
2.) Run the Allrun script.
3.) After the run is finished, run the wallHeatFlux utility: chtMultiRegionFoam -postProcess -func wallHeatFlux -region bottomAir > log.fluid
4.) The error message is shown:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
request for volScalarField wallHeatFlux from objectRegistry bottomAir failed
available objects of type volScalarField are
From function const Type& Foam::objectRegistry::lookupObject(const Foam::word&) const [with Type = Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>]
in file /home/ubuntu/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-6/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/objectRegistryTemplates.C at line 193.
|Additional Information||Looking at the log file, it seems that the wallHeatFlux utility is able to execute correctly for time 0, but not for any subsequent timesteps. |
