Hi,

I'm using twoPhaseEulerFoam now to study sediment transport, and I'm courious about the kinetic theory part.

In the kineticTheory.C we can see that the dissipation due to inelastic collision has missed a term tr(D) as the laster term, has anyone evaluated how important is this term?

[QUOTE]// dissipation (Eq. 3.24, p.50)
volScalarField gammaCoeff
(
12.0*(1.0 - sqr(e_))*sqr(alpha_)*rhoa_*gs0_*(1.0/da_)*ThetaSqrt/sqrtPi
);
/QUOTE]

Also, the J2 term, that is the fluctuation energy production due to fluid-particle slip, does anyone know the original paper that propose this formula?

[QUOTE]volScalarField J2
(
0.25*sqr(betaPrim)*da_*sqr(Ur)
/(max(alpha_, scalar(1e-6))*rhoa_*sqrtPi*(ThetaSqrt + TsmallSqrt))
);/QUOTE]

and the last and the most important question is that, the 'pa' and 'tau' in kinetic theory is really alpha*pa or just pa, since it's wierd that it does not have alpha in front of it, while in UaEqn, the pa is directly added as normal pressure ( solved in pEqn). the question is , in pEqn, we should add pa or (pa/alpha) ?

in pEqn:
[QUOTE]if (kineticTheory.on())
{
phiDraga -= rUaAf*fvc::snGrad(kineticTheory.pa()/rhoa)*mesh.magSf();
}
/QUOTE]

Thank you very much!

BTW, could anyone be kind enough to tell me where the reference of this kinetic theory is, since it has some comments in the code, however, I really don't know what they are referring to, Thanks!

Berend van Wachem phd thesis. I got the full document by simply googling: Van Wachem phd thesis TUDelft. Kinetic theory for particles starts at page 78.
