Hello,

i have a problem by dimension in result of volPointInterpolate(p). In Result are factor 1000. The result of volPointInterpolate(U) - velocity distribution - are plausible. What can be my mistake? Whats the problem? About informations I'm very happy.

You are probably using a solver like icoFoam or simpleFoam, in which the pressure is a dynamic pressure in m^2/s^2, rather than in Pascal.

Have a look at 0/p under dimensions: [mass length time ...] to see if I'm right.

If so, AND your fluid density is ~1000 km/m^3, all is clear.

Good luck,

Hrv

Hello,

thanks for the informations. I use openFoam 1.4.1 and solver turbFoam.

Here the part of /p, /u and /phi. Is this the problem whis ~1000 km/m^3? I dont understand, because I think I work in 1 or 2:

1 2
Mass kg To
Weg m mm
Time sec sec
Force N N
Temper K K
Power W mW
Work J mJ
Stress N/m2 N/mm2
Density kg/m3 To/mm3
