Summary0003774: waterChannel tutorial wrong fieldi
DescriptionWhen running the tutorial


The solver gives the following warning,

surfaceFieldValue inletFlux write:
--> FOAM Warning :
    From function virtual bool Foam::functionObjects::fieldValues::surfaceFieldValue::write()
    in file fieldValues/surfaceFieldValue/surfaceFieldValue.C at line 809
    Requested field rhoPhi not found in database and not processed

Also, no information is saved in the output files surfaceFieldValue.dat

The right field keyword should be phi instead of rhoPhi in the definition of the function object inletFlux.
Steps To ReproduceJust run the tutorial

TagsNo tags attached.

phi is the volumetric flux and so not appropriate for this purpose, the intension is to obtain the mass flux. rhoPhi is no longer cached so either phi could be multiplied by rho in the sampling or maybe it would be better to include the phase-fraction to obtain the volumetric flux of the water.
