Dear Foamers,

I'm struggling to complete a simple task (I think): calculating the Peclet number filed on the results of an icoFoam simulation.
When I run
postProcess -noZero -func PecletNo
It gives an error saying that it needs a turbulence model to complete the calculation.
I'm currently running OpenFOAM 4.0

I hope I'm not missing something really obvious/simple.

To write the surface scalar field of Peclet Number (Pe), we need to run the post process utility with solver name.

an example of the command is given below with simpleFoam solver.

Hope this will solve your problem!!!

simpleFoam -postProcess -func PecletNo
