Dear Dr. Henry Weller

IDear Dr. Henry Weller
1. I am studying flow over a hydrofoil. From looking at the interFoam results i got the feeling that the solver does not solve the viscous terms ( for example i was not able to see the wake behind the hydrofoil ) . Is this correct ? 2. How difficult is combining say interFoam & simpleFoam solvers ( I am new to OpenFOAM) Thanks a lot Best regards Kumar |

Hello all ,
1.
I have a suHello all ,
1. I have a suggestion for combining the interFoam and turbFoam . Took a look at the "UEqn.H" in the interFoam solver . noticed that the term for turbulence is absent. i was wondering if this term could be added - as in turbFoam. 2. If the modification is indeed possible , then what happens to the solve(UEqn == -fvc::grad(p) ? Is this term simply taken care by the following in UEqn.H if (momentumPredictor) { solve ( UEqn ............. .............. ); } Can Dr. Henry Weller or anyone else please please give some inputs ? Thanks a lot Kumar |

Hello Kumar
I think that whHello Kumar
I think that what you're trying to do is already provided in OpenFoam, i.e. rasInterFoam. It is based on a PISO pressure-velocity coupling algorithm. You can try if you wish to change to it SIMPLE. |

Hi Pierre
Thanks a lot for Hi Pierre
Thanks a lot for the information. I will check it out. Best regards Kumar |
