Dear Foamers,

I would like to know if we can solve a steady state compressible Pipe flow problem using OpenFOAM, where I have some arbitrary density profile that is varying in the radial direction and no density variation in the z direction as input. If yes, which tutorial can be a good starting point and how can we go about doing the same.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
