Hello,

I'm using OpenFOAM v2.1 and I would like to visualize solid particle movements inside water tank. I would like to do it in a simple way, only one-way coupling would be needed (low concentration of small particles), and particle injection at the inlet of the tank
I tried to use some solvers available on the internet but none of them is working. I know only basic C++ and I'm not able to create my own solver, even if it may look simple for you.
Does anyone know a simple way to visualize solid particle movements with OpenFOAM 2.1 ?

Thanks in advance

Sorry for restarting this thread but were you successful in finding a solver? I am interested in knowing it.

you can work with DPMFoam in OF2.3.0 or OF2.2.x
this solver considers two phases of water and solid and track the movement of them:

Hi Ali,

I had a look at DPMFoam, but from its description it seems that it handles compressible fluids and solids and not incompressible fluids and solids which I want to work with.

DPMFoam is a Transient solver for the coupled transport of a single kinematic particle cloud including the effect of the volume fraction of particles on the
incompresible continuous phase.:

as in transportProp we have:
Code:
    transportModel  Newtonian;
    contiuousPhaseName water;
    nu                    1.07e-06;
    rho.water             998.707;
and it includes:
#include "PhaseIncompressibleTurbulenceModel.H"

Hi,
Is this the Goldschmidt tutorial you are referring to? As in that properties of air are mentioned.

this is not from "Goldschmidt"
but "Goldschmidt" is the same as what i wrote but for air and no other difference
