hot water flow into a lake/river
Hi FOAMers,

I am quite new into OpenFOAM. I should now model the influence diammeter of a hot water flow that arrives into a cold lake (for and Environmental impact study). I am not sure which one of the traditional OpenFOAM solvers should I use. I've implemented the temperature equation in interFOAM as someone in this Forum suggested to. But for this case though, Im looking more to create a one phase model.

Is it possible, for example, to implement velocity/mass inlets and outlets in one of the traditional bouyantFOAMs (i.e buoyantPisoFoam)? I'am not sure how to achieve that.

Thanks for your advices!
