wallLubricationForce in twoPhaseEulerFoamSolver
Hello Foamers,

I want to implement the wallLubricationForce in the twoPhaseEulerFoam solver. The compiling was succesfull, but if i want to solve the bubbleColumn-Case i got the following error:


Courant Number mean: 0.0596327 max: 0.205145
Max Ur Courant Number = 0.128547
Time = 0.002

I think the errorsource is the walldistance (yw) in my liftDragCoeff-File which i get from wallDist.H. I tried a lot, but my knowlegde in C++ is nearly zero. ^^


volVectorField Ur(U2 - U1);
volScalarField magUr(mag(Ur) + residualSlip);
volVectorField nw = wallDistReflection(mesh).n();
volScalarField yw = wallDist(mesh).y();

volScalarField Cwall(0.5*CwlEo*d*(1.0/sqrt(yw)-1.0/sqrt(Dpipe-yw)));

volScalarField WallForceMag(CwlEo*alpha1*dichte*sqrt(mag(Ur-(Ur & nw)*nw)));

volVectorField WallForce(WallForceMag*(-nw));

Thank you for your help and ideas

Best regards Daniel
