Hi everybody!!

I'm trying to run FSI cases with icoFsiFoam and I just would like to ask....why does the pressure variable has the following dimension?

[0 2 -2 0 0 0 0 0]

what does it mean? How should i set the value in the initial condition?

Thanks for the help.

Stefano

its "p/rho"
as rho is incompressible, it seems you divide pressure with a constant!

Greetings to all!

To complement Nima's answer, check this recent thread for more information: Tutorial, Pressure initial conditions

And don't forget that icoFSIFoam is based on icoFoam So if you haven't read and done the first tutorial on the OpenFOAM User Guide... then go do it before using icoFSIFoam!

Best regards,
Bruno

I've discovered the mistery 30 minutes after posting my thread... )

But anyway, thank you the same for your answers.
