 November 22, 2011, 05:32 simpleFoam p field for interFoam p field #1 New Member   shyam prasad Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 25 Rep Power: 9 Hi Foamers, I need to use interFoam to solve a problem, but it blows up within few time steps, which I believe is because of poor initialization . Hence I used simpleFoam to obtain the velocity and pressure fields. Now I want use the pressure field of simpleFoam (with units m^2/S^2) to obtain the pressure field of interFoam (kg/m/s^2) which is nothing but the product of pressure and density. How do I obtain this in openfoam?

But then your off by a factor of the density is suppose?

If you do this one, I assume the foamCalc utility can do the trick.
