Hi,

I am using the chtMultiRegionFoam with OpenFoam 2.1.x and I realized that if I have a normal pipe flow the velocity at the lower edge is wrong [attachment]. My case is 2D and I defined a velocity of 3m/s at my inlet.
For my case the buoyant pressure is important because my real case has a heat source and I want to investigate this buoyant driven effects.

Hello Sausi,

could you solve your problem? Is gravity considered in your simulation?
