1 Short description

Fixed Heat flux boundary condition for incompressible thermal flow under Boussinesq-Approximation.

It reads Cp0 and rho0 from transportProperties dictionary.

It also need alphaEff field. This field has effective thermal diffusion coeffcients that incompressible thermal flow solver like boussinesqBuoyantSimpleFoam calculates.

For a more recent version of this utility, see Contrib/wallHeatFluxIncompressible.

2 Installation

1. Download the package file into the directory where the OpenFOAM-1.5 directory exists, i.e. $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR.

2. Untar the file.

tar zxf WallHeatFlux-VERSION.tar.gz

3. Apply the patch.

patch -p0 < Patch-OpenFOAM-1.5-src-finiteVolume-Make-for-wallHeatFlux-VERSION

4. Build the library.

cd src
wmake libso finiteVolume

3 Note

This library has been not tested well especially for parallel calculation.
