 November 7, 2011, 11:43 Pressure distributions in potentialFoam #1 New Member   Joe Lindsey Join Date: Nov 2011 Posts: 1 Rep Power: 0 Hi everyone, I'm a new user to OpenFoam and am currently trying to run some inviscid simulations using potentialFoam. I've run the cylinder tutorial and also a 2D case with a NACA0012 aerofoil. However, while the velocity distributions for both these cases looked correct, the pressure distributions looked completely wrong, looking more like a distribution of velocity potential (when running potentialFoam -writep). Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, did they ind a solution? Cheers Joe

You'll need to calculate the static pressure on your own from the velocity field and the total pressure. __________________ David A. Boger
