The open source CFD toolbox
Tabulated acceleration

# Usage

The option is specified using:

disk1
{
type            tabulatedAccelerationSource;
selectionMode   cellSet;
cellSet         sourceCells1;
fields          (U);

timeDataFileName "constant/acceleration-terms.dat";
}


The timeDataFileName provides the name of a file containing a list of the motion as a function of time, e.g.:

//     t      acc    omega   dOmegadt
(
( 0.0  ((1 0 0) (0 0 0) (0 0 0)))
(10.0  ((2 0 0) (0 0 0) (0 0 0)))
);


where:

• t = time [s]
• acc = acceleration vector [m/s2]
• omega = rotation vector [rad/s]
• dOmegadt = angular acceleration [rad/s2]
