Default Pressure and forces on patch

w.chaabouni is on a distinguished road
Hello everybody,
I am really newbie in using OpenFoam and I started using it last week. I am using the batch UBUNTU on Windows 10
Actually, I am trying to calculate the pressure and the forces applied on a pipeline posed on the bottom of the sea and I am facing two problems.
I started with the tutorial “waveExampleStokesI” and made the geometry using SALOME. I verified my geometry using “checkMesh” and I had no errors. Later, the simulation stops at a point without showing any error. I tried the normal running and the parallel running and the simulation stops at the same time step. Anyone has an idea how to fix this problem?
The second point, can anyone help me on how to measure the pressure and the forces on the pipeline? Should I get the P and the U separately and do the calculations? Or there is a mean to do it directly with OpenFoam?
I am really stuck and I would be grateful for your help.
