Selecting version of OpenFOAM in WE-UQ
« on: October 21, 2021, 04:51:28 AM »
Hi, I understand from the Documentation that WE-UQ has OpenFOAM v6 and v7. I run a test case, from the pisoFoam.log file, the line “/home1/apps/intel18/impi18_0/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-6.0/platforms/linux64IccDPInt32Opt/bin/pisoFoam -parallel” indicates that OpenFoam version 6 is used. How do I set the version of OpenFoam to v7 in WE-UQ? Thank you.

looking at the wrapper script that runs at TACC it only load the openfoam 6.0 module.

1) can you point out where in the doc it says 7.0 so i can fix that
2) is there something you need in 7.0?

1) It is under "Code Implementation" in the Documentation https://nheri-simcenter.github.io/TinF-Documentation/theory/turbulent_inflow.html#code-implementation

2) This is regarding the length scale issue in a previous post (http://simcenter-messageboard.designsafe-ci.org/smf/index.php?topic=98.0), the check for negative converted length scale is implemented in OpenFoam v7 but not in v6.

That is TinF, which is different to WE-UQ. I have asked the developer how much effort to move to OpenFOAM7. I know there are libs that are compiled from our code (TinF and possible others) that are used by OpenFOAM, just not sure if they will compile for 7 and if they do not, what effort will be required. It is Friday afternoon, hopefully get back Monday.
