Support wallHeatFluxCalculation on incompressible fluid (icoReactingMultiphaseInterFoam solver)
Functionality to add/problem to solve
Actually wallHeatFlux can be only calculated with compressible fluids. A try with the icoReactingMultiphaseInterFoam solver runs into the error message
Unable to find compressible turbulence model in the database
From virtual bool Foam::functionObjects::wallHeatFlux::execute() in file wallHeatFlux/wallHeatFlux.C at line
Who will benefit from the changes?
All cases that need an wallHeatFlux value with incompressible solvers. Other software in that OpenFOAM is included build actually own solutions for the problem and try to detect compressible/incompressible solver type. (e.g. preCICE openfoam-adapter)
A solution is present since 2012. https://github.com/wyldckat/wallHeatFluxIncompressible
A look to https://github.com/precice/openfoam-adapter/tree/master/CHT could be helping.
- Edit title. Maybe a problem with the solver?
