 September 29, 2013, 14:44 How to solve this alpha Eqn using MULES? #1 Member   David Long Join Date: May 2012 Location: Germany Posts: 55 Rep Power: 5 Hi Foamers, I want to modify the interFoam solver where the alpha Eqn is like: Eqn 1: The fluid Cell contains fluid phase 1 and phase 2, along with the solid phase, here \epsilon_f stands for the volume fraction occupied by fluid (V_phase1 + V_phase2). \epsilon_f filed is also defined in createFields.H Code:  volScalarField voidfractionFluid ( IOobject ( "voidfractionFluid", runTime.timeName(), mesh, IOobject::MUST_READ, IOobject::AUTO_WRITE ), mesh ); The original VOF method in interFoam is: Eqn 2: the implementation code of alpha equation: Code: ` for (int aCorr=0; aCorr

Concerning this problem how the source terms should look like? because MULE needs Su and Sp source terms to solve it implicitly or explicitly, but the question is how to derive Su and Sp from this source term on the right hand side.
