Hi all,

I am new to OF so my question may be stupid, anyway, I am trying to simulate an axisymmetric opposed jet configuration, where each jet has a circular flange flat with the exit section. I am using icoFoam from FoamX and blockMesh to generate the mesh. Below is the blockMeshDict file:

arguments "/$HOME/OpenFOAM/$HOME-1.3/run/tutorials/icoFoam/counterflow" off;

The axis of symmetry is along X, the radius along Y and the one cell thickness along Z. The mesh is quite corse and I do get the 'Severe skewness' warning, but I still expect the solution to be qualitatively correct.
When I run the simulation, the result seem to be much like the flow between 2D flanged jets, as the velocity between the flanges seem to be constant along the radius.
I also used another file, which gives the same result, but the FRONT and BACK (wedge) palnes are parallel for the flanges and at an angle for the jets.
I am very likely doing some very stupid mistake, and would appreciate if you could help.

Regards,
Gianfilippo

I am getting the right Vx profile, but a Vy=0 and Vz non zero.

Can someone comment on this, please ?

Thanks
