Summary0003146: Mass source term in chtMultiRegionFoam
DescriptionAs discussed in this forum thread (, it is currently not possible to add a mass source term with fvOptions for the solver chtMultiRegionFoam.

The reason seams to be, that the corresponding term is missing in the pressure equation:

        fvScalarMatrix p_rghEqn
            p_rghEqnComp + p_rghEqnIncomp
          + fvOptions(psi, p_rgh,
Steps To ReproduceAdd a mass source term (only) to the continuity equation.
No effect is seen in the simulation.

Change the solver and add the source term also to the pressure equation.
Should work as expected.
TagsNo tags attached.

@Henry: Since this is already in commit 953e725eb583b5779f215df86f253f79b5f0b5ba on OpenFOAM-dev ( ), I don't know if there is anything else to be done for this report?
