Dear STAR CD Masters,

I would like to know the different and the function of Prostar Cell and Star Cell. I want to make user coding for sorsca.f to calculate the chemical reaction in the porous media. How to use them if I want to create scalar exchange between gas and solid phase?

Thanks

PROSTAR and STAR are two separate and distinct programs. STAR uses a different cell numbering strategy.

In the user subroutines POSDAT and CONATT you can use ICLMAP(i) to convert the STAR cell number for cell i to the PROSTAR cell number.

I believe you will need to use POSDAT and SORSCA to achieve your stated goal.

Hi, thank you for your answer,

I am a beginner user, so I still confuse with which one is PROSTAR and which one is STAR program. In what case actually we can make the STAR cell, cause I only know that I use PROSTAR to create the cells. STAR program is only for solver right?

Thanks

Prostar is the pre/post processing program. Star is the colver program.

You only make prostar cells. When you run star, it creates the star cells.
