Dear all, I wonder what "value uniform 1; // placeholder" / "value uniform 200; // placeholder" mean in "turbulentIntensityKineticEnergyInlet" / "turbulentMixingLengthDissipationRateInlet" boundary condition !

The k and epsilon values can be solved from intensity and mixing length only. What does "value uniform" do ?

Thanks for the input.

Sagnik


PS: Boundary condition specifications:

inlet
{
type turbulentIntensityKineticEnergyInlet;
intensity 0.05; // 5% turbulence
value uniform 1; // placeholder
}

inlet
{
type turbulentMixingLengthDissipationRateInlet;
mixingLength 0.005; // 5 mm
value uniform 200; // placeholder
}

Greetings Sagnik and welcome to the forum!

The need for the line with "value" is explained in the comment: it's merely a placeholder! In the sense that:
  1. The dictionary reading system requires that this line is present. You can try removing it and you'll see that the solver will complain about the missing entry.
  2. This "value" keyword is later used to store the fields that have been calculated in the next iterations!
Best regards,
Bruno
