Hello everyone,

I need to solve diffusion equation with fixed flow of gas through the plane. (For example, every second 1 million particles leave the plane and get into the volume). I have velocity field. What can you recommend to use for solving this problem.

And another questions - what does "phi" file mean, when solve with scalarTransportFoam.
