In today’s article, I am going to explore with you how to solve the simple cavity flow example with Openfoam!
This tutorial will describe how to pre-process, run and post-process a case involving isothermal, incompressible flow in a two-dimensional square domain.
Openfoam Lid-Driven Cavity Flow Tutorial
This is how the boundary conditions of the cavity are defined. All the boundaries of the square are walls. The top wall moves in the x-direction at a speed of 1 m/s while the other 3 are stationary.
This example is fully detailed in open foam user guide here, so feel free to check it as well for the detailed process in text format.
