I am newbie in openfoam I saw some posts on the subject, at first I was scared. Could someone show me how to implement the parabolic velocity profile to the input of my tube (2D)? What do I do? Thanks for attention and sorry for posting this topic again. If I can implement, I will make a pdf manual for beginners to share here.

Thank you for your attention.

I use OpenFOAM 2.3.0

Using groovyBC you can do that, check out the example on "pulsedPitzDaily".


Also, you can refer to the chalmer's document. By following the instruction in the document you can use the patch "parabolicVelocity". I don't know much about OF 2.3.0 version, whether this BC is available in the same. If not you can install the BC using the instructions mentioned in the document.


Best Luck!
