Dear Foamers,

I would like to use the interFOAM solver for my personal test case.
Starting from the :
FOAM_TUTORIALS/multiphase/interFoam/laminar/damBreak
The example shows the ascent of a bubble of air through the column.
I would like to add an injection of a continuous air flow rate from the bottom.
How could I add the air flow rate ? Should I add it in the setFields ?
I looked for many examples in the tuto and I did not found examples to show the flow rate design. May be I missed something.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for advance !

Kind regards

Hello,
If you look in the tutorials there are several bubble colums. Have a look at those

Good luck and happy foaming

Hi Wouter !

Thanks for the answer, Yes I found many interesting examples. I'm running some of them to get hand with OpenFoam.
Do you know if I can find example which use for example gas or steam injection through a nozzle into a column or a tank ?

Again many thanks !

Kind regards

Hi Belkadi,

I am trying to simulate a oil tank with an air injection. Did you manage to solve your task? Can you explain to me how did you manage to have the air flow rate?

Thanks
Regards
Marco
