Hi everybody!

I'm a new user in OpenFoam. I have done some tests and simulations and now I have a problem. I have to solve a mixing layer with the solver sonicFoam between supersonicFlow and subsonic flow, with the k-Epsilon model of turbulence. I'm having some problems with the boundary conditions, like the outlet and in the zone between the two flows.
What boundary conditions do you recommend to me? And what initial values for k and epsilon?

Hi, did you find good boundary conditions for your case.
I`m trying to do a subsonic high Ma shear layer, I tried different BCs, but my results doesn't look good, they're different with the stuff published before. Any Idea?

k-epsilon, openfoam, turbulence
