Hello,
how can I specify the density rho when I'm using the simpleFoam solver. I want to calculate water flowing through a pipe. I'm quite new to OpenFoam, I'm more used to Fluent.
When I would calculate the same Case in Fluent I would have to specify nu and rho.
My question is now:
Do I have to specify rho or is rho calculated by OpenFoam somehow ?

Regards,

Sebastian
