sonicLiquidFoam and turbulence model
Hi, I am trying to add a turbulence model to sonicLiquidFoam, but it seems to be not so trivial as I though. Principally, I am not sure if the turbulence model has to be incompressible or compressible. If I do that with incompressible, I get some errors when correcting phi. When I try with compressible, it ask for basicThermo.H, which I don't use at all.

Any hint?

Thank you

sonicLiquidFoam with turbulence model
Hi Robert

Did you implement the turbulence model to be used with the sonicLiquidFoam solver in OF?
I need simulate a water hammer problem and the turbulence effects is very important to predict the correct damping.

Hi, Diener,

not yet! I am still working with laminar flows. But I should face this problem in some days/weeks. I will report my progress, if any...

Best regards
