how to read in a position file
 
Hi guys

I am trying to ask openFoam to read in a position file using the "lookup" like the following:

position position [0 1 0 0 0 0 0] (x1 y1 z1 x2 y2 z2 x3 y3 z3 ...)

the above is defined in the dictionary file.

if it is just one particular position

position position [0 1 0 0 0 0 0] (x1 y1 z1)

Then I can use

position_(dimensionedVector(particleProperties_.lo okup("position")).value()),

my problem is I am not too sure how to define this position variable in the code as it is a nx3 matrix, which means I can not use vector or tensor for the type.

I am think using vectorField but could not find much from the UserGuide.

Does anyone have an idea about this?

Thanks a lot.
