Hello all,

I would like to know which angle should I type for "theta outer" for a cone injection?

Is theta outer the whole cone angle or just the half cone angle (That means the angle between the cone central axis and the cone border)?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards

It depends on the version of OpenFOAM you are using. For anything in 2.0.x or earlier, its the full angle assuming you are using the hollowCone/coneInjector, whereas for 2.1.x and later its the half cone angle when you are using coneNozzleInjector
