how to find the maximum vorticity and streamfunction in driven caivty
Dear friends:
i solved the 2D lid driven cavity problem using SIMPLE algorithm. could you please tell me how to obtain the maximum vorticity and stream function in the flow field. thanks 
did you find the answer?

At steady state, compute the vorticity from your velocity field and solve the elliptic equation Lap (Psi) = vorticity. This way you get both functions and all the values you need

Let's imagine your are in 2D and vorticity is stored in an array VOR(NI,NJ). VORMAX=VOR(1,1) DO J=1,NJ DO I=1,NI IF ( VOR(I,J).GT.VORMAX ) VORMAX = VOR(I,J) END DO END DO assume fortran coding

Establish a gridindependent solution. Otherwise any approach you follow will depend on the grid, whether you use an interpolation method or simply find the max over the grid.

But even that will be grid dependent if the underlying solution is grid dependent.

leflix is right, just add the i,j values where the maximum is obtained.
What you ask for is simply wrong. In a numerical solution nothing else exists but the grid value. This is established by the Nyquist theorem. When you want to compute some extragrid value, is common to use some interpolation to reconstruct a continous function. But the values you obtain are somehow arbitrarily, depending on the order of the polynomial reconstruction. Therefore, just use the grid value, they are meaningfull of your solution

hi everybody
can you help me about openFoam ?please I have run a program but the software shows some error .if you can help me I will send errors for you.:) 
hi
whats your problem?which university are you? 
openFoam
hi I am in razi university from kermanshah.
I am working with openfoam I am going to analyse ac cavity .my solver is boussinesqsimple .when I run the program there is some error in fvslution(include solver for pressuer & tempreture & velocity and SIMPLE solver) file .I have copied this file from another exaxmple without any changing. I should be say that the software reads constant & 0 files.
