Hi,everybody
I am a newbie, have questions about performing CFD on a Laval Nozzle .

I think ,solvers suitable for it are
rhopSonicFoam, rhoSonicFoam , sonicFoam , sonicTurbFoam
Am i right?

The inlet conditions of Total Temperature and Pressure are known. But none of the solvers above have proper BC setting for this. Why?

Can you give me some suggestions?
thx

Yes you can use any of those 4 solvers depending on your needs.

I guess your inlet is supersonic and that by specifying total pressure and pressure you could also evaluate the inlet velocity and fix that. In which case you can use the supersonic inlet condition.

thanks a lot.
The inlet is subsonic,it will reach supersonic on outlet.
Maybe those solvers arenot suitable,I think,they can be used for supersonic inlets. Although some of them can be used for transonic, but can only for transition from supersonic to subsonic,not from subsonic to supersonic.
Is that so?

I do not see how it is physically resonable for you to specify both pressure and total pressure, i.e. a complete specification of pressure and velocity at a sub-sonic inlet.

Sorry I missread your original post. We have not implemented a total temperature inlet boundary condition but it should be quite easy for you to do so. Take a look at the total pressure boundary condition implementation in OpenFOAM-1.1/src/OpenFOAM/fields/fvPatchFields/derivedFvPatchFields/totalPressur e and you will see what is necessary.
