#### Storyboard ####

First I wanted to write a nice story like »Ignaz« but that would only copy the good attention of the author and of course I am not a good story-teller. Therefor I will go directly to the topic and will tell you how the PIMPLE algorithm is working in OpenFOAM, how to set up the keywords and which abilities you have to control the algorithm. The test case it the pitzDaily case in the pimpleFoam folder of incompressible fluids. Only the courant number was decreased...

useful udf ! thanks to macfly

Faces of a cell

openfoam loop cell faces of a cell and get the corresponding cell face normal, noting that the normal vector direction points from low cell ID to the higher one

I decided to post my question inside this thread, as it is also somehow connected with looping over faces in a given cell. What I try to achieve is to get the face normal vector at every face in the cell, regardless it is a boundary cell or internal.
I produced the following code...:
