Hello everyone,

I am currently working with OpenFoam 1.6-ext to generate waves using the toolbox waves2Foam. Everything works just fine.
Now I want to calculate the forces acting on a monopile due to the wave loads by using the the function "forces" ( Therefore I need to define a pressure field "pName" but OpenFoam just calculates pd which is just a mathematical value, I guess?!
So is there a way to get OpenFoam to calculate p (total pressure) and also rho?
