Hi, foamers

Does anyone know how OpenFOAM allocates the variables in the grid ? I would guess that the scalar fields are allocated in the center of the cells while vector fields components in the faces of the cells. Is that right ?

Thanks,

it use collocated method, means both scalar and vector variables are placed at cell centers
