I am new to OpenFOAM and need to model a canopy for my masters project.

I need to add a sink term to the momentum equation using the fvOptions file in the system folder. The sink term is only applied to a specified domain and the sink term needs to vary with the height of the domain.

How would one go about using fvOptions to model this?

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Jason,

What do you mean by canopy?

Best regards,
