how to combine dieselFoam and nonNewtonianIcoFoam for spray dryer simulation

Posted November 8, 2010 at 01:52 by troosta

Dear all,
I try to combine tow solvers of OPENFOAM, dieselFoam and nonNewtonianIcoFoam slover for a spray dryer simulation. I need a algorithm to do it. I asked this question from Dr. Ville Anton Vuorinen, and send me this answer:"
In one conversation Niklas Nordin explains how the lagrangian classes match
with other solvers.
Basically the actual steps to create the solver were really easy.
Just including some .H files and adding a spray source term.
This was only copy paste from the dieselFoam solver.
By the way, you migth get an easy solution be simply using the dieselFoam
and running it without the RANS models, DieselFoam is based on the pressure correction approach (PISO) so it works also for low Mach number incompressible flows. "spray dryer" sounds like this might well suit
your purposes.
My suggestion
1) take dieselFoam, rename it
2) take aachenBomb case, rename it and modify the turbulenceProperties settings from Rans approach to laminar or LES.
3) run your simulations"
I need more explanation.

Yours sincerely
troosta
