Dear Foamers

Nowadays, I'm working on the total pressure boundary condition in the simulation using the rhoCentralFoam. The basic rules of the inlet condition is the total pressure condition, the details are presented as follows:

The inlet boundary condition is in this paper:
or see the attachment.

where the Pst and Tst is the total parameters in the inlet, the P is the pressure in the cell near the inlet, the Pi and Ti is the computed pressure and temperature which are needed in the boundary input.

My question is that is there a boundary condition similar to this in the OpenFOAM? or how to implement this boundary in the OpenFOAM? or how to implement through groovyBC?

thanks,very much.

In link

you can find OpenFOAM has inlet boundary condition of total pressure and total temperature.
