Default coding of antal lubrication force

nw is the unit normal pointing away from the wall.
v1-v2 is is the relative velocity difference between phases, in the plane of the nearby wall surface (that is, orthogonal to nw).
yw is the distance to the nearest wall.

magUr = mag(Ur);
sqrmagUr = sqr(magUr);
volScalarField Cwl = max(0.0, (Cw1/da)+(Cw2/postion.y);
volVectorField wallLubForce = Cwl*alpha*rhob*sqrmagUr*position.y.normal

postion.y is yw.
position.y.normal is nw.

How can I express yw and nw in the foam?

You can use the files that are located in src/finiteVolume/fvMesh/wallDist . I think you can get wall distance and normal vectors from these files.

For synthax you can have a look at LES turbulence model vanDriestDelta, where the wall distance is used. For the normal vectors I don't know an example, but the reflectionVectors files seem to be what you need.

Never tested them but you can find the Antal/Frank models here:

I'm sorry for my repeating question. I'm still not not sure how I can get a normal distance and a wall normal unit vector. Here is what I did.

I Included two header files in the main code.

#include "wallDistReflection.H"
#include "wallDist.H"
I updated option.

-I$(LIB_SRC)/finiteVolume/lnInclude \

-lfiniteVolume \

In the code,

// Distance to nearest wall: wallDist.H
volScalarField yDist = y.n();

// Wall normal unit vector: wallDistReflection.H

volScalarField Cwl = myScalar/yDist;
Info << "Cwl= " << Cwl;

But I've got compilation errors shown below. How can get a yDist and a normal unit vector?
