• Wrapper around the fixedValue condition to set the static temperature from a definition of the total temperature
  • Applicable to the temperature field


The condition sets the temperature at the patch \(T_p\) based on a specification of the total temperature, \(T_0\):

\[T_p = \frac{T_0}{1 + \frac{\gamma - 1}{2 \gamma} \psi \mag{\u}^2}\]
