Summary0003728: If multiple meanVelocityForce entries are specified in cellZones only the first entry will be considered..
Descriptionif there are multiple entries of type meanVelocityForce on different cellZones within a region, only the first entry will be handled. All further entries will be neglected, at least according to the log file.
Steps To ReproduceUse the tutorial channel395 and replace fvConstraints and controlDict with the files in attachments. Additionally use attached topoSetDict to create the cellZones. for automated workflow you can use the attached Allrun and Allclean. By checking log.pimpleFoam it turned out the only first entry will be considered:
 
..
smoothSolver: Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 0.760481, Final residual = 8.02892e-06, No Iterations 4
Pressure gradient source: uncorrected Ubar = 0.177755, pressure gradient = 0.514522
GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.181495, Final residual = 0.00635363, No Iterations 3

..
Additional Informationthe problem occured by openfoam 9 and openfoam dev. Same problem does not appear for openfoam 7 or openfoam 8.
same output using openfoam 8 :

It seems that in fvConstraintsTemplates.C, there is a check

constrained =
                constrained || constraint.constrain(field);

in both eqn and field constrain-functions.

If constrained is true, the "constraint.constrain(field)" is never evaluated. The first U-constraint sets constrained to true for field U and then the second call to constrain the same field will not be evaluated.
