niles_91 is on a distinguished road

I've made a mesh with blockMesh that has a periodic inlet and outlet (they have the same shape). I want to drive the flow by a body force only (laminar flow, so icoFoam will suffice I guess), for that I've read that pressureGradientExplicitSource can be used.

The velocity I have to set periodic, I do it like this:
        type            cyclic;
    value         uniform (0 0 0);

        type            cyclic;
    value        value uniform (0 0 0);
How do I treat the pressure p, should that also be periodic?
