Hello everyone,

I am trying to edit the SimpleFoam code to introduce different atmospheric effects for a ABL problem.

Y need to introduce the value of the Shear Velocity in the walls for my calculations. I have introduced the values of the WallShearStress in the code, based in the WallShearStress file, however, to define my scalar field of the shear velocity I need to define the value of the wall for all the field in the vertical direction.

In other words move the values of my boundary field to my internal field.

Any idea of how I can define the full scalar field as the value in the wall?

I would appreciate any help.
