Hello all,
I'm new using OpenFoam, and I'm doing a project with it.
I'm trying to calculate p and U for an airfoil using pisoFoam, with kepsilon realizable.I have free flow arround the profile. I have the mesh ok, and I have some files in 0 directory, this files are p, U, epsilon, k and nut. For p I have a fixedValue at the outlet and the other patch are type zeroGradient uniform 0.
For U I have a fixedValue in the inlet and type zeroGradient;value uniform (0 0 0) for the other patches, internalField is uniform (0 0 0) too.
For epsilon I'm not sure, becouse I tryied with zeroGradient and an uniformValue (the value calculated for epsilon) in the boundary patches and in the fixedWalls type epsilonWallFunction; value uniform 58;
For k i put kqRWallFunction with intensity 0.05 and value uniform 0.8, and as epsilon I tryied diferents values, now I have zeroGradient inlet, outlet, up and down with value uniform 0.
For nut I have nutWallFunction with value uniform 0.00098 for fixedWalls, and zeroGradient with value uniform 0 for the other patch.
I have the following error when I run pisoFoam in the terminal:
