Hi there,

As it says in the title, I would like to show, in paraView, the output plot of pressure as, instead of merely the pressure in Pa, a nondimensional pressure that is pressure/dynamic pressure, is there any way that I can do this?

Hi there,

I think you can use the 'Calculator' tool in Paraview to calculate whatever you like starting from the pressure as given by OpenFOAM.
