Hi there
Sorry to ask such a general question but I'm really lost.
I want to simulate solid particles in a gas flow. The particles are so small and the concentration is quite low, it's about several mg/m3.

In my simulation. the particles flow(diesel particulate matter) is emitted by a diesel engine into an underground tunnel at a constant velocity. And the concentration in the tunnel is quite low.So it's a kind of dilute solid particle flow. The gas flow carries the particles along. I need to simulate the concentration distribution ,the collision of the particle flow.

At first, I was trying to use DPMFoam or MPPICFoam, but I found these two solvers are only suiting for dense particles flow. For such dilute solid particles, which solver should I use?

Thanks very much.

How about the coalChemistryFoam? I can turn off the chemistry reaction.

Isn't there a dieselFoam solver available in openfoam-extended? Maybe this is something that would suit your needs?

Thanks for ur reply, honestly ,I am a beginner to OpenFoam, I did not find this DieselFoam in version3.0. And the diesel particles which I simulate is incompressible flow, Is DieselFoam able to simulate the incompressible flow, and I just need to simulate the distribution of particles and track the particles. My simulation needn't to simulate the combustion and other chemistry reaction. Could dieselFoam achieve my goal ?

Thank you
