Wedge

# Properties

Applied in pairs to 2-D rotationally symmetric cases to represent planes in the swirl direction.

# Usage

The condition requires entries in both the boundary and field files. Mesh boundary file:

<patchName>
{
type            wedge;
...
}


Field file:

<patchName>
{
type            wedge;
}


# Details

• The patch pair must straddle a co-ordinate plane equally
• Separation between wedge patch pairs must be
• a single layer of cells
• points should appear collocated when viewed in the mid-plane normal direction
• Particles will be snapped to the mid-plane between pairs of wedge patches
