Hi everyone,

I'm undertaking a project in CFD regarding drag reduction around a square cylinder with a spanwise sinusoidal profile. I have been advised to begin by creating a model of a square cylinder (no sinusoidal profile) using OpenFOAM and blockMesh. Having no previous experience with OpenFOAM, let alone CFD, I went through the necessary procedures to install it and began going through the tutorials in the user guide.

After reading the tutorials, I have a fair idea of where to start. But before I do, is there any advice that anybody here can offer me? I was thinking of using this tutorial:, and modifying the code to suit my application. Would I be right in doing this?

Any help is appreciated.
