Hi All,

I want to set-up my problem in OpenFoam. I have gone through the user guide, but dint get idea about: How to generate mesh, how to define BC & fluid property & solvers ?
Please some one can help me to find any doc/ link where all the procedure are defined step by step. I have to setup "flow over flat plate" kinda problem.
It was urgently required............

thanks alot

I would look for an similar case in tutorials-folder (maybe airfoil?), create your own mesh (blockMesh or using Salome), adjust the boundaries in 0/ folder of the case so that them match to your mesh and run the solver. Also look whether the fluid properties are setup in a right way (viscosity? air? water?)

Hi Devesh..............

you can refer to tutorial cases and documentation in OpenFOAM-1.5 directory in doc and tutorials.

Please go through the documentation first....
