I am interested in testing velocity and pressure driven flow in OpenFoam, I am able to run tutorial cases in icofoam and simplefoam.

For either elbow pipe or straight cylinder cases, how to validate velocity and pressure driven flow.

Any link or hint will be great.

Hi Jay,

Have you solved your problem? I am trying to simulate a pressure driven flow in a channel with simpleFoam and I am getting bad results. How do you set BCs for U and P? I use fixedValue for inlet and outlet (p file) and pressureInletVelocity at inlet and zeroGradient at the oultet (U file).
