ang_dipl_ing_fd is on a distinguished road
Dear Foamers,

i do not really know much about c++ and how to program a new solver. Therefore i just combined the channelFoam solver with buoyantBoussinesqPimpleFoam to get use of the ability of cyclic inlet outlet. Now i realized that the boundaryFoam solver use a similar code. Can someone tell me what's the difference? Which would be better for constant massflow? And how do i get delta p (ptot outlet-ptot inlet) after simulation?

Thanks in advance
(i uploaded the file, if someone is interessted)
