I am searching for help to create a Karman wake with OpenFoam. I could need some basic hints.
Can someone please help me?

case file you could start from.

Hi Marcus,

thanks a lot for your answer. By the way, I am a very new user of OpenFoam.

I have seen your text about reducing the mesh thickness to one cell. How did you do that?
I created a 2D mesh with Gambit/Fluent but in paraFoam it is always shown as 3D mesh.

I have no experience with Gambit or Fluent. What do you mean with 'always shown as 3D'?
Is it one cell thick in the third direction? That is the way Openfoam is working. One cell
thickness (with b.c. 'empty') actually means 2D. If you look on the geometry of my Karman
case, it has the same properties.
