hello everyone,
I have 3 velocity fields Ua = Ub -Uc,
then I calculate the vorticty field using the vorticity application in openfoam and applied the vorticity application on each velocity field individually. Since curl is a linear operator I expect to have such a correlation: vorticity(Ua) = vorticity(Ub) - vorticitiy(Uc). but this condition is not satisfied.
anybody has any idea?
