question about OpenFoamtemperatureGradient boundary condition
p { marginbottom: 0.08in; } Hi all,
My problem is about applying temperature gradient to a wall in OpenFoam. I have a rectangular box filled with gas and try to apply temperature gradient through the vertical axes. Therefore I put the fixedValue boundary condition for the up and down walls (for example 500C for up wall, 300c for down wall). But I don’t know how can I determined the boundary conditions for left and right walls. How should I define the boundary conditions to obtain temperature gradient? It maybe so simple question but I am new in OpenFoam. Therefore, I will be appreciate for any help. p { marginbottom: 0.08in; } Thank you very much.... 
Did you try fixedGradient?

p { marginbottom: 0.08in; } Thank you very much for your help. Actually, I thought it but I could not understand how can I use .
I read something about the fixedGradient. At one of them it is mentioned that, fixed gradient evaluate data from internalfield. If I understand it right, internalfield should not be uniform for that case. It can be define as nonuniform, but I don't have data for defining non uniform internalfield ( for nonuniform field definition, I should have some data about temperature for each position point). Therefore I couldn't decide about fixedgradient. If you know how can i use fixed gradient boundary condition with internalfield, could you please help me? Moreover I am also a little bit confused about gradient value defined for fixedgradient. I am not sure that manual entry for gradient value can represent the system correctly. Actually I thought that, the program does calculates the temperature value along the wall boundaries by using hot and low temperature given for up and down wall??
