Meeting other OF-Users at OFW7

Last week I did take part in the OpenFOAM Workshop 7 (OFW7) at Darmstadt's "Darmstadtium". It certainly was a great experience!

There was only one minor downside to it: The architect of the Darmstadtium obviously had a strange idea of providing fun to visitors of the building by making orientation difficult. Somehow the different walkways reminded me of a book about a young wizard who comes to a school of wizardry and finds a staircase changing every now and then.

This is a very useful UDF for beginners...

Also, in my previous udf, I defined -k because I'm used to see a minus sign before k in the definition of the shear stress. But the apparent viscosity is positive so the minus sign is a source of error because

Gnuplot Vector Probes from the funtionObject

Posted June 9, 2012 at 15:27 by Hisham (Notes for OpenFOAM!)

When using the functionObject to probe a vector (e.g. velocity) at a location, the output is in the format:
Code:
# Time  vector
1.20   (2.14   8.512   1.005)
.
.
.
Unlike sampling or using probeLocations, until now AFAIK it is not possible to use U.component(0) to spit only the X-component. To resolve that using gnuplot, one can use:
Code:
plot 'probeFile' using "%lf (%lf %*lf %*lf)"
to plot the Ux component...
