Hi everyone!
I've installed the Docker version of EOF-Library that uses both Elmer and OpenFOAM (.org version) on a WSL v2.

The idea is to simulate an electric arc inside a switchgear compartment. For that, I need to simulate the arc with MHD equations (Maxwell + fluid dynamics equations), transferred heat from the arc to the surrounding air, and the raise in air pressure inside the compartment because of that heat increase.

My problem is that I do not understand how to make the solver and I don't find any detailed documentation on how to make one. I understand that I have to work with the solvers provided by OpenFOAM and a file and directory "Elmer style" for setting up the case.sif and mesh.

What I'm doing now is looking at the solvers that are already installed with the library and trying to figure out what is what to make my own, but I don't think this is a clever way to work.

Does anyone have any experience making solvers or has any documentation to refer me to?
