Hello all,

I'm looking for an starting point how to add a complex source term to the momentum equation of the BuoyantBoussinesqPisoFoam solver:

As described in the openfoamwiki the governing equation for the momentum is:

\frac{\partial \bar{u}_i}{\partial t} + \frac{\partial}{\partial x_j} \left( \bar{u}_j \bar{u}_i \right) = -\frac{\partial} {\partial{x_i}} \left( \frac{\bar{p}}{\rho_0} \right) + \frac{1}{\rho_0}\frac{\partial}{\partial x_j} \left( \tau_{ij} + \tau_{t_{ij}} \right) + \frac{\bar{\rho}}{\rho_0} g_i + \mathbf{\frac{F_i}{\rho_0}}

The term F_i stays for the complex source, which is defined as follows:

F_1 = \rho_0 2\Omega(\sin(\varphi)u_2 - \cos(\varphi)u_3x_3)

\varphi depends from the position of the coordinate x_1 and x_2

F_2 = -\rho_0 2\Omega(\sin(\varphi)u_1 and last for F_3 = \rho_0(x_3^2-1)(\cos(\varphi)\frac{u_1}{x_3} +  \beta(\bar{T}-T)g)+\rho_0\cos(\varphi)\frac{u_1}{x_3}+x_3(\bar{p}-\rho_0u^{2}_{2})

Does anyone can give me please a hint how I should start to model such complex source terms in the openfoam library? Maybe there is a good example?

Thanks to all and best regards

Hi,

not really. The only way that I've found, but not tested, is to use swak4foam. Moving source term

For more complex source term handling I suppose that's necessary to get familiar with the OF code.

Best regards
