Boundary condition for temperature
Dear FOAMers,

I want to create a wall boundary with a tempeature profile along the wall. It just to be a linear function, something like:

T (x1) = T1, T (x2) = T2 -> T (x) = m*x + n

Is there a suitable BC for that available in OF 2.2.0?

Thanks in advance for any idea.

Best regards, Nico

OK, I just solved it by mapping nonuniform values from a coarse mesh . That should work for the first time.

Hi Nico,

Then I suppose that you would greatly benefit from looking into swak4Foam:

Kind regards
