freefoam-applyBoundaryLayer(1) Apply a simplified boundary-layer model to the velocity and turbulence fields based on the 1/7th power-law.


freefoam applyBoundaryLayer [-ybl <scalar>] [-Cbl <scalar>] [-help] [-srcDoc] [-doc] [-writenut] [-parallel] [-case <dir>]


The uniform boundary-layer thickness is either provided via the -ybl option or calculated as the average of the distance to the wall scaled with the thickness coefficient supplied via the option -Cbl. If both options are provided -ybl is used.


-case <dir>

Case directory.


Run in parallel.

Output turbulent viscosity.

-Cbl <scalar>

Coefficient for scaling of the average distance from the wall.

-ybl <scalar>

Specify the uniform boundary layer thickness.
