Where can i find a list of the Boundary Conditions used in OpenFoam such as zeroGradien, slip, freestream... etc??? I know there is a list somewhere but i can not find it... Can you please give me the path???

Thank you in advance,

A.D.E

in any of your simulations, just mis-spell a boundary condition. attempt to run the simulation. it will spit out all the available boundary conditions:

Thank you for your comment.

You can also look at: /opt/openfoam200/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived$

Sincerely,

Hi all,

maybe my question cover many topics, but is there a sort of tutorial file where patches field are explained in detail, with some explanations how to set up them correctly?

Thanks!
