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. 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.
