Hello.

Im Trying to simulate a Forced-Driven Fluidflow using IcoFoam.
Im using the "CavityFlow" Tutorial as a base and simply want to add a Force in x direction.

I think its simple but im new to Openfoam and im not getting it right.

Any help appreciated!

As a quick pointer in the right direction: look at fvOptions. It allows you to add a source term, which can be your force.

So i added an fvOptions file in the system but its not working

\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
location "system";
object fvOptions;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

momentumSource
{
type vectorExplicitSetValue;
active on; //
selectionMode all; //

vectorExplicitSetValueCoeffs
{
injectionRate
{
F ( 10 0 0 );
}
}
}

I think this one

should suite your needs better. It allows to add a source term.

It is not possible to enable any fvOptions for icoFoam at the time of writing.
