Hi, I have a question about thermophysical models,


I understand that if i.e, the energy variable is enthalpy F=h(T) and dF/dT=Cp(T), in:

Code:
src/thermophysicalModels/specie/lnInclude/specieThermoI.H
my question is where it is defined in the code, that F and dF/dt take these variables as arguments.

I understand also that the energy variable is selected by the thermo model. I.e, if is selected
Code:
eConstThermo
the energy variable is the internal energy, but I can find in the code where is defined F=e(t).

Pd: I have a basic knowledge of C++


Thanks in advance for any hint,


Fg.

Hi,

the answer is in the same class
src/thermophysicalModels/specie/lnInclude/specieThermoI.H
Have a look at the functions TH(scalar,scalar) and TE(scalar,scalar).

Best Regards,
Christian

Hi I was browsing through basicThermo class an found that this class returns null field when requested for enthalpy.
If understand it correctly this is a dummy enthalpy, that is not connected with temperature field.
Could someone explain this to me?

Hi,

the function are virtual and get overwriten in the following classes (e.g basicPsiThermo and hPsiThermo ...)
