In my linux exist openfoam201 and openfoam 210 but both of them doesn't have conjugateHeatFoam solver. I search it in solvers but I dont find conjugate .
is there any one tell me where is problem? doesnot have openfoam201 conjugateHeatFoam solver? or I didn't find it?

tnx for any help

Hello Sajad,

I think that the solver you mention was the ancestor of the current chtMultiRegionFoam solver.

Regards,

Alex

The case I talk about in this site was solved with chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and involves radiation. Some basic tutorials are also resolved step by step in the web. If you are interested in these matters, you are invited to come in!

hello,

No, conjugateHeatFoam is not the ancestor of chtMultiRegionFoam.
- ChtMultiRegionFoam is for multi region, with weak coupling at interface.
- conjugateFoam use strong coupling. You will find it in the extend version of OF only. (1.6-ext, foam extend 3.0 and 3.1).

regards,
olivier

tnx for your reply
Can I add foam extend1.6 to openfoam201?If yes how can I?

tnx for any answer

Thanks for clarifying Olivier, it's good to know the difference between both solvers. Could you, please, tell a little further if there are more differences between them? I could be interested in installing foam extend if the solvers to solve conjugate heat transfer problems are more accurate (and fast) than they are in OpenFOAM 2.3.x.

When you say that the coupling is stronger, do you mean that the convergence is faster?

Thanks for your info Olivier.


Regards, Alex

I guess it's better to say monolithic and partitioned approach, rather than locked in strong/weak coupling.
In conjugateFoam (monolithic approach), use same primitive variables, cast governing equations in terms of these variables, solve a single coupled matrix equations.
In chtMultiRegionFoam (partitioned approach), separate governing equations, solve matrix systems, couple at the boundary interface, sub-iterate until couple convergence is reached.

Cheers,
