Hi all I am trying to simulate a moving shock using the forward step example from sonicFoam. The initial values at the inlet for the pressure and temperature were set to 1 while the velocity was set to 3. I assume these are nondimensional values? But the solver is solving the dimensional N.S equations according to the programmers guide. :confused: Also not sure whether the time directories are dimensional or not. The viscosity was set to 18.1e-6 for air which is dimensional but I couldn't find the transportProperties script in the forward step folder.
