Hi,

I'm new with openFOAM and cfd . As assignment for a university course, I should simulate a DOC-DPF system (teacher gave me a tutorial). I have set the porous zone in that way:

porosity1
{
type DarcyForchheimer;
active yes;
cellZone catZoneCells;

DarcyForchheimerCoeffs
{
d d [0 -2 0 0 0 0 0] (2e8 1e8 1e8);
f f [0 -1 0 0 0 0 0] (0 0 0);

coordinateSystem
{
e1 (0.866 0.5 0); // asse cilindro
e2 (0 0 1); // ortogonale a e1
}
}
}

I did not completely understand the meaning of e1 and e2. I think these unitary vectors are the local coordinate system of the zone, but how can I set the origin of the system?
What is the kind of relation they have with the global system?

Thanks to all!

Best regards,
Matteo.

I also have the same question. Anybody have any idea to clarify the problem?

Thank you,
