Hello,

Is it possible to run Pure two dimensional simulation using OpenFOAM?
For instance, if we have symetric flow between two parallel discs, how should I setup the mesh?

Thanks in advance,

Marco.

You can use any three-dimensional solver with a mesh that is one element thick. Set the top and bottom surfaces to "empty" boundary conditions. If you want a *pure* 2-D simulation, OpenFOAM has a finite area library (use fam and fac instead of fvm and fvc)... but I think you would have to write your own solver for that.
