## Creating curves in blockMesh (An Example)

In this post, I’ll give a simple example of how to create curves in blockMesh. For this example, we’ll look at the following basic setup: As you can see, we’ll … Continue Reading Creating curves in blockMesh (An Example)

## Sutherland’s Law

When working on practical engineering applications, you often encounter problems where there are significant changes in temperature locally in the flow field. For instance, if you are doing a heat … Continue Reading Sutherland’s Law

## Air Properties Calculator

Here is a little calculator for calculating the properties of air. Enter the pressure (Pa) and Temperature (K), and the calculator should produce an estimate for the specific heat capacities, … Continue Reading Air Properties Calculator

kω-SST (komegaSST) Boundary Conditions Here the basic boundary conditions if you are using the kOmegaSST model in OpenFOAM: At the wall: ω (omega) – specific dissipation rate BC type: fixedValue BC … Continue Reading BASIC kOmega-SST Boundary Conditions

## y+ Calculator

Here’s a useful little tool to estimate your wall spacing requirements to achieve a specific y+. It is based on flat plate boundary layer friction estimations. Therefore, it should only … Continue Reading y+ Calculator

## Equations for Steady 1D Isentropic Flow

The equations used to describe steady 1D isentropic flow are derived from conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, as well as an equation of state (typically the ideal gas law). … Continue Reading Equations for Steady 1D Isentropic Flow
