The open source CFD toolbox
Translating wall velocity

# Properties

• Wrapper around the fixed condition
• Sets the velocity parallel to the wall to a given value, e.g. to approximate a moving ground plane
• The patch normal velocity component is set to zero

# Usage

The condition is specified in the field file using:

<patchName>
{
type            translatingWallVelocity;
U               <Function1>;
}


The velocity, U, is defined as a Foam::Function1 type, allowing the value to be prescribed as a function of time.
