muhmos is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

posting for the first time. I am doing a simple cavity simulation using open foam. I have managed to get the simulation to run, and I've used a probe to read pressure and velocity data at a specific point. When I analyse the data, the U and P values always seem to decay.
Ive ran this numerous times using different meshes and time controls but results seem to be the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
