Hi

I ran a steady state simulation of flow over a building. I want to introduce a source on to the top of the building. I am using simpleFoam for calculations. How do I simulate the pollution source. Do I have to modify simpleFoam or do I use another solver ? If so how do I modify the solver or is there an existing solver I should use ?

you have two options:
1) define a patch there, so you can assign a boundary with source there
2) modify your solver to insert a source term for specified cells

extra option:
3) i guess swak4foam have options for these kind of problems
