Hello there,

Does anybody know of any applications of OpenFOAM for solving the full transonic potential equations in 3D?

I have very little experience with OpenFOAM, but from I have read of the user guide it seems that modifying the code to solve a new set of PDEs should be possible. The equations I am interested in can be found on slide 11 here:

I was wondering if anyone with any experience with OpenFOAM might be able to inform me on how big a job it would be to recode a solver within OpenFOAM to solve the 3D transonic potential equations for complex geometries. I think I may be overestimating how flexible the framework is.

I would looking to solve this equations on civil transonic aircraft in a similar fashion to the code Tranair++:

Many Thanks
