 April 20, 2012, 02:14 8th order polynomial function(VOF smoothening) + ENO discretisation #1 New Member   Jacky Join Date: Jul 2011 Posts: 24 Rep Power: 7 HI all....... I am trying to smoothen vof field in following way: - LVIRA for finding normal to interface, - 8th order polynomial function for smoothened vof field, - ENO discretisation for convection terms I am facing follwong difficulties while implementing it in FLUENT: Q 1 - How do I get normal vector from FLUENT so that LVIRA can be implemented ? I know Fluent uses Youngs reconstruction method in which normal is -ve gradient of vof. I hv found some fluent storage variables for vof gradient viz.SV_VOF_RG So my question is can I use following for interface normal vector and thereby can I modify it by storing in it value returned by LVIRA ? C_STORAGE_R_NV(c,t, SV_VOF_RG) Q 2 - I need normal distance of interface form cell center. I found a macro in sg_vof.h viz. Get_Surface_Distance(cell_t c, Thread *t). Can somebody tell me what this macro returns ????? Q 3 -Can somebody tell me How should I implement MINMOD function of ENO discretisation scheme in FLUENT platform ? To be more precise I need to do following: du/dx = (U_{right} - U_{center})/deltaX + 0.5*dt*MINMOD(a,b) where a and b are some other complex terms.... Using which DEFINE macro or any other macro can it be done in FLUENT ???? ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED............ Regards, Bharat
