Adding coriolis forces in simplefoamHi all!
I am trying to add coriolis forces in simplefoam into the momentum equation. The source code for the momentum equation is the following: fvm::div(phi, U)+ turbulence->divDevReff(U) = -fvc::grad(p) and I would like to add the coriolis force component that should be computed from the cross product between the velocity (U) and the earth angular velocity. I do not know how to implent it as U is a volvectorField and the angular velocity I have defined as Vector <scalar>. Thank you in advance. Xabi. |

simpleSRFFoamDear Xabi,
have a look at the simpleSRFFoam solver provided with OpenFOAM 1.5 tutorials. There is already everything in it you want to do. I hope this helps, Regards, René |
