naveen is on a distinguished road
hi msrinath80,

myself Naveen working on flow around a circular cylinder using OpenFOAM 1.4.1 and 1.5 versions past 1 month. I am getting pressure and velocity contours correctly in both the versions.I am facing difficult to get the vortex shedding frequency in OpenFOAM.

Can you please suggest me how to get the strouhal number and vortex shedding frequency in OpenFOAM.

Flow conditions:

Reynolds number---------> 150 (based on cylinder diameter)
velocity------------------------>1 m/s
viscosity---------------------->1 (based on cylinder diameter)
diameter of cylinder--------> 2 m

can you please give me a suggestion how to get these values.

waiting for your response
