Hi there,

When 2D model is converted to OpenFOAM format it creates a new model in 3D anyway - that's the OpenFOAM way.

Now my question. What thickness for the model is assumed? Should it be a unity or is it some unform "weird" small number?

I'm asking, because I try to calculate surface forces, which I assume are calculated based on the OpenFOAM model thickness.

After conversion, my present model thinckness is something between +-0.0248 or 0.248 (not sure now, do not have access to the model).
