Default FunkySetFields - Initial condition create radial velocity

michu is on a distinguished road

I just installed swak4Foam for OpenFOAM and I am trying to use FunkySetFields tool inside the swak4Foam to create an initial condition with a vortex. I want to identify the circulation/radial velocity and a point around which to rotate. Are there any tutorials for how to do this or can anyone offer any help on how to use swak4Foam/FunkySetFields to do this?

Thank you,

Answer for swirl:
To create a swirl in openfoam, one method is to use the swirl function in the SourceProperties. Look at this thread for more information including a script.
