Hi fellow FOAMers,

I would like to know if there is a way to define density as a function of temperature (polynomial function)?

I am using rhoSimpleFoam solver.

It is possible to define density as a function of temperature in CFX but i couldn't find anything similar in OpenFOAM.

Also, I am not able to use heRhoThermo with rhoSimpleFoam. It doesn't let me use anything apart from hePsiThermo.

OpenFOAM version 2.2.1
