HI

I want to simulate the 2D Burger's equation (modified a little) on a domain ]0,1[ x]0,1[ , all seems to be simple.

But I have the problem of telling the solver I want non-uniform boundary conditions (BC) and specify Initial conditions (IC) on the domain.

For example:

BC:
U(0,y)=U(1,y)= C*y ; V(x,0)=V(x,1)=C*x
(so The U vel will vary linearly along the y axis while the V vel will vary linearly along the x axis)

IC:
For the initial condition t=0. I want to tell the solver that the value of U and V (x-vel and y-vel) are function of the position
U(x,y) =sin(pi*x)*cos(pi*y) and V(x,y)=f(x,y) for t=0.

Can you tell me how to do it in openfoam?

BC: timeVaryingMappedFixedValu

BC: timeVaryingMappedFixedValue. Reads table of values. Interpolates in space (and optionally time). See the pitzDailyExptInlet tutorial

IC: Search on the Wiki for Bernhard's funkySetFields.
