hello everyone,

i wanted to know if it is possible to make a pressure jump in openfoam without using the cyclic bc (fan patch),

my problem is that i need to set a pressure jump in the axial direction and at the same time a velocity jump (discontinuity) on Z and Y, and cyclic bc won't accept other bc for velocity.

thanks in advance

as far as I know, we can specify jump for scalar variable only in openfoam.

I am little confused here. Do you want to specify pressure jump in x-direction and velocity jump in other directions? My understanding is jump can be only imposed "across" the surface. It would be great if you could post a snapshot of the geometry you are dealing with and specify what jumps you need along what directions
