wallShearStress for compressible flow
Hi everyone,

I've been using the wallShearStress utility recently and realised that it does not work for compressible flow problems. Does anyone know how it could be adapted for compressible flow?

I think its just a matter of including some other head files and changing one line, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Best regards,

Try looking at src/postProcessing/functionObjects/forces/forces/forces.C

There you'll find wall shear stress extracted for compressible flows.

Thanks. I had a look at the forces code. It's all clear now.
