Descriptions of the tutorials (with pictures)
- A first tutorial case for this solver
The basic tutorial case for sonicLiquidFoam is given on pg. 64 of hte Programmers Guide to OpenFOAM. The case describes decompression of a tank. The tank is initially filled with stationary liquid and the pressure is released at an outlet.
Lid-driven cavity flow. Left, right, and bottom walls are stationary. Top wall moves to the right, causing rotation in the fluid.
There are a few variations that come with the tutorials. The first three (cavity, cavityClipped and cavityGrade) are mofications to the classic lid driven cavity. The first case, cavity, has a step-by-step tutorial provided with the documentation (see Lid-driven cavity flow). The other case is a simple mixing elbow.
These tutorials use the simpleFoam solver which is an implementation for steady flow using the SIMPLE algorithm. SimpleFoam can use all the turbulence models in the incompressibleTurbulenceModels library and the non-Newtonian models in incompressibleTransportModels library. There are 6 different tutorials using this solver in OpenFOAM 2.1.1: (1) 2D air foil (airlFoil2D), (2) motor bike (motorBike), (3) Cyclic pipe (pipeCyclic), (4) backwards facing step (pitzDaily), (5) backwards facing step with a experimentally derived inlet boundary (pitzDailyExpInlet), and (6) a turbine siting example (turbineSiting). --Wlamont (talk) 23:33, 6 November 2012 (CET)
