Wave Action Equation Solver for OpenFOAM

Posted September 3, 2013 at 07:18 by egp

Hi Tom,

This sounds like an interesting problem! Ignoring the wave space issue for a moment, I think you need to first cast the problem as a 2D surface using either the finiteArea machinery of 1.6-ext, or the thin film model in 2.2.x (see reactingParcelFilmFoam).

The wave space issue is a bit more complex and I don't have a good recommendation for an elegant solution. Brute force for a fixed number of wave-space bins would be doable, but ugly. What is the typical...

About their accuracy, limitedLinear is in my experience slightly less diffusive, but I had good results with both the schemes.

I believe the second order upwind scheme in commercial

A few simple questions about linearUpwind and limitedLinear

linearUpwind:

I know linearUpwind is second order and bounded by a limiter (e.g. cellMDLimited from http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...lllimited.html).

Mesh OK!

Posted August 23, 2013 at 03:53 by skeptik (CFD notes)

13e6 elements with SALOME (4 core CPU, 8Gb, Linux)

10e6 - tetra,
3e6 - prism layers.

Meshing time is about 2 hours.

Remove internal patch(es): mergeMesh + stitchMesh

After using stitchMesh you will see the boundaries are still present in the boundary file bu they will contain 0 faces. You can just delete them from this file in this case (don't forget to change the number of boundaries at the top of the boundary file).
One time i've forget to change the number of boundaries
