Hello!


I am using OF4.1. I am struggeling with the evaluation of total pressure at patches named "IN" and "OUT". I was able to calculate the total pressure field. But I have no idea how to extract the mass-flow weighted total pressure at my boundary patches.


Solver: simpleFoam


controlDict:
.
.
runTimeModifiable true;

functions
{
#includeFunc flowRatePatch(name=IN)
#includeFunc flowRatePatch(name=OUT)
#includeFunc residuals

pressure1
{
type pressure;
libs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so");
patches (IN);
writeControl timeStep;
writeInterval 1;
log on;
pRef 1;
// Calculate the total pressure
calcTotal yes; // yes | no

// Calculate the (total) pressure coefficient
calcCoeff no; // yes | no
}
}



BTW:
The flowRatePatches evaluation work perfect. And I would like to have total pressure value each for "IN" and "OUT".


Thanks for support!

No ideas? Are there information missing?

This works with OF-5.0:

Code:
pIN
{   
        type            surfaceFieldValue;
        functionObjectLibs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so");

        writeFields     false;
        writeControl    timeStep;
        writeInterval   1;  

        // Output to log&file (true) or to file only
        log             true;
        valueOutput     true;
        source          patch;
        sourceName      "IN";

        regionType      patch;
        name            "IN";
        surfaceFormat   ensight;

        // Operation: areaAverage/sum/weightedAverage ... 
        operation       areaAverage;

        fields
        (
            p
        );
     }

Thanks! I works. I had to change 'type surfaceFieldValue' -> 'type surfaceRegion'. Then it can be used for OP4.1.


How can I evaluate the total pressure at patch called 'IN'? Changing the 'fields' to total(p) is not working:


Quote:
pIN
{
type surfaceRegion;
functionObjectLibs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so");

writeFields false;
writeControl timeStep;
writeInterval 1;

// Output to log&file (true) or to file only
log true;
valueOutput true;
source patch;
sourceName "IN";

regionType patch;
name "IN";
surfaceFormat ensight;

// Operation: areaAverage/sum/weightedAverage ...
operation areaAverage;

fields
(
total(p)
);
}
gives the following error:

And also important: Where can I find information on how to use the post-processing tools?

You can't do in-situ postprocessing of the total pressure, because it is not available by default. Easiest solution is to compute the total pressure and the samples in post after the simulation has completed.

Your first stop for information on how to use the postprocessing tools is the openfoam manual.

Here is my ./system/controlDict file to get relevant data during simulation. Maybe it helps other users with same problem.
It works well for OF4.1 and simpleFoam.

Code:
 functions
    {
    #includeFunc flowRatePatch(name=IN)
    #includeFunc flowRatePatch(name=OUT)
    #includeFunc residuals
        #includeFunc totalPressureIncompressible
    #includeFunc pressureDifferencePatch
    #includeFunc singleGraph
    #includeFunc surfaces
    #includeFunc streamlines
