Dear Sirs,

is there a way in OpenFoam to calculate wall shear stress during Post-processing?

Yours faithfully,

Claudio Comis

Hope this helps u:

  • wallGradU Calculates and writes the gradient of U at the wall, wallGradU, for the current time step.
  • wallShearStress Calculates and writes the wall shear stress for the current time step.
