Flow past cylinder
OpenFOAM case files for simulation of a laminar flow around a cylinder.
To generate mesh you need Gmsh application in your PATH.
To run simulations you need:
- Checkout files with Mercurial or download tarball.
- Select a version you'd like to run. Difference between cases is in mesh density. Coarse mesh has around 50k cells, fine mesh is 4 times denser.
- Select approperiate fvSchemes and fvSolution files. You can either rename fvSchemes.X in fvSchemes or create a symlink.
- After you can run Allprepare script to generate mesh and make corrections in boundary dictionary.
- Run pimpleFoam
