Dear Foamers,

I have a basic question about the solving methodology of OpenFOAM. I was wondering in OpenFOAM before the finite volume method is implemented, are the fundamental equations (Navier-Stokes) changed in curvilinear form, in solvers like icoFoam and so on....???

Thanks,
Sumit

Hello,

OpenFOAM uses the equations in Cartesian coordinates.

Best,
