polo2k4 is on a distinguished road
Query, the velocity indicated in the boundary conditions in interfoam is the average Reynolds component or is the instantaneous velocity?.

depend. If you use LAMINAR mode, it is the direct velocity. If you use RANS, it is the reynolds averaged one (like all other quantities too).

Was it the answer you were looking for?
