Hi everyone,

I've been using the wallShearStress utility recently and realised that it does not work for compressible flow problems. Does anyone know how it could be adapted for compressible flow?

I think its just a matter of including some other head files and changing one line, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Best regards,

Chris

Try looking at src/postProcessing/functionObjects/forces/forces/forces.C

There you'll find wall shear stress extracted for compressible flows.

Thanks. I had a look at the forces code. It's all clear now.
