Hi guys,

I've been working with rhoPimpleAdiabaticFoam and I've got a simulation finished that I'm happy with.
Now I want to post process the sound pressure level.
So I've gone and built and installed the libAcoustics and fftw.
I'm stuck on what to do next. For example what should my noiseDict look like?

My domain is just a box with some feature in the middle.
It looks like the first step is to take a slice of the domain, then export that as a csv file. Then you need to get noiseDict to read that and then......?
My noiseDict won't read my file yet, which is an issue, I dont know what format it should be in with regard to column headers etc...
Any thoughts????

Did you find the answer to your questions? I am starting/planning to use libAcoustics for studying propeller noise. It would be really helpful if you could guide.

Many thanks in advance.
