Hello all,

I use chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and one of my regions is made of water. When defining the thermophysical properties for water

Code:
thermoType
{
    type            heRhoThermo;
    mixture         pureMixture;
    transport       polynomial; 
    thermo          hPolynomial; 
    equationOfState icoPolynomial;
    specie          specie;
    energy          sensibleEnthalpy;
}
in OpenFOAM 2.2.2 I was wondering if I could use the already defined water properties available in OpenFOAM in file:

Code:
/src/thermophysicalModels/properties/liquidProperties/H2O/H2O.C

mixture
{
    specie // Something like H2O here?
    {

(...)
So, my question is: is it possible to use the water properties in this file in my thermophysicalProperties file? If not, which are the aimed uses for this file?

Thank you very much,

Vitor

Hi Vitor,

I was wondering if you found a solution this? I have similar needs.

Thanks

Actually, no. It's just a guess, but I don't think these water definitions are aimed to
general use.

My solution (until this moment not completely working) is to change the fluid properties
in file thermophysicalProperties.

Good luck,

Vitor

p.s.: I'm planning to go back to this after implementing my code. I'll let you know if I get any progress.

Thanks very much. That is the tactic I have adopted too.
