Test case set-up

  • It is necessary to select the correct solver (more information concerning solvers can be found further in this text)
  • We select solver simpleFoam (solver for incompressible, turbulent, steady state fluid flow)
    • solver’s source code is in directory:
    • source code is always in *.C and *.H files
  • Tutorial test case is in:
  • Copy tutorial pitzDaily for simpleFoam solver to your work directory:
    # cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/simpleFoam/pitzDaily $FOAM_RUN
  • Enter directory pitzDaily
    # cd $FOAM_RUN /pitzDaily
