within OF1.5-dev I am trying to use "movingRotatingWallVelocity" (for Taylor-Couette problem). Here is my set for this type of boundary conditions (for velocity):
centre (0 0 0);
axis (0 0 1);
value uniform (0 0 0);
Unfortunately I can not find any reasonable (physical) description for "value"; can anybody , please, explain what is "value"!
Thanks in advance.
I don't have the code in front of me, but I'm pretty sure it is not being used. So you should be able to set it to anything and be ok. Also, beware in earlier revisions of 1.5-dev this BC was missing a 2*pi for converting rpm to rad/sec.
void Foam::movingRotatingWallVelocityFvPatchVectorField ::write
os.writeKeyword("centre") << centre_ << token::END_STATEMENT << nl;
os.writeKeyword("axis") << axis_ << token::END_STATEMENT << endl;
os.writeKeyword("rpm") << rpm_ << token::END_STATEMENT << endl;
Last but not least, the rotational speed is calculated (I think properly) as:
vectorField Urot =
(axis_ ^ (patch().Cf() - centre_))*rpm_*2*mathematicalConstant::Pi/60;
