Hi,
I am simulating a cascade of chemical reactions which result in clot formation and growth in a liquid. My question is: How should I implement Level Set method in ANSYS CFX in order to track solid-liquid interface at every time point?
I would appreciate any help, textbook, tutorial, or paper on this.
Best

CFX does not have a level set method. It also does not have solid-liquid interface tracking. I think Fluent has these models - are you using Fluent?

Hi Ghorrocks,
Thank you for your attention, I saw some papers where researchers implemented level set in CFX but without any explanation. However, yes, I can easily shift to Fluent if needed. Do you know any piece of document that may help me implementing level set in Fluent? Thanks

I think you will find the paper implements a model they wrote themselves to do level set and liquid/solid interface tracking. If you want to implement these in CFX you will have to do it yourself as well.

The Fluent documentation is the obvious place to get information about the models in Fluent. The ANSYS community webpage has it available.
