Hello,

I am a beginner of using OpenFOAM. I want to set the log-law velocity profilr as the inlet boundary conditions. How to do that?

Hello, many thanks for your reply. I have download swak4Foam.
svn checkout https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo...ies/swak4Foam/

But I do not know how to install it and make it usable.
