Mass flow in simpleFoam simulation.
 
Hi

I have designed a cyclone separator, and i wish to know what is the massflow in each of its two outlets, is there any tool in OpenFOAM to be called on each outlet patch to obtain this value...?

Best regards

Alex

I use patchMassFlow offered in simpleFunctionObjects (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...unctionObjects)

Hi Chegdan

Thanks for your answer :)

Where can i download a tar.gz containing the sources for swak4foam for OF-1.5-dev...?

or Is there no swak4foam for OF-1.5-dev, and i must compile the simpleFunctionObjects instead...?

I ask this because i have 3 versions of OF in my lappy, 1.7.1, 2.0.1 and 1.5-dev which i need for the lagrangian particle transport solvers...

There is no version of swak4foam for 1.5-dev (nor for 1.5-vanilla for the matter). But the simpleFunctionObjects work independently from swak and there is a version of that that works for 1.5-dev (have a look at the URL that Dan posted)

Thanks Bernhard,

I have already compiled it, and added the entries to controlDict, works like a charm... :)
