1 Short description

Calculates the pressure difference between two boundary patches

2 Motivation

This utility was written to compare simulations with the equivalent Fl�?¼nt-cases.

3 Usage

The utility is controlled by a Dictionary. The contents of the dictionary are

  • the name of the "inlet" patch
  • the name of the "outlet" patch
  • for incompressible calculations a density can be defined. This is used to correct (in other words multiply) the results to get the same values as those printed by Fluent.

4 Notes

To calculate the pressure difference between the two patches the average pressure at the patch is used.
