Running SOWFA

I have installed OpenFOAM and I am now working with the SOWFA tutorials to get a better understanding of how this software works. However, I am having trouble making this “boundaryDataPre” folder necessary for the precursorABL neutral and unstable tutorials and the windPlant neutral and unstable tutorials. How can I generate this folder?


You need to copy “controlDict.2” to “controlDict” which contains the definition for the “boundaryDataPre” data slices.
Once the time-series are fully generated, then run “” and “” which create the south and west boundary inflow data under “boundaryData” folder. This extra step is required to convert the data files readable by OpenFOAM.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.


Thanks for the reply! One more quick question, how do you fully generate the time series?
