Dear All,

This is my first post in this Forum. I hope to have a long life with OpenFOAM.
I understood the architecture of OpenFOAM and I generally like it; the initial documentation is pretty good. However I would like to use PDRFoam in order to simulate gas deflegrations. I am experienced in using FLACS of the Gexcon but now I started using OpenFOAM.

I see there is a lack of documentation on the solvers like PDRFoam and the one inside the '.C files is too short.
I kindly ask if someone has personal notes or annotations on PDRFoam and he/she is willing to share them with me. Once I advanced on my simulations I would be happy to share my notes to people approaching PDRFoam for the first time.

Also suggestions on how visualize the obstacles (modeled with the cell porosity concept) in the tutorial "flamePropagationWithObstacles" using paraFoam is really appreciated.

Thank you,
Regards,
Pierluigi

Seems PDRFoam does not have any documents on how setting up the simulations (e.g. how to create "betav" file). XiFoam seems not having the porosity concept for modeling objects, but currently it is fine with my investigation, and there are few documents on the web:

Numerical Investigation of the Aerodynamic Influence of Combustion on the Vortex Breakdown

Tutorial XiFoam

And next documents just show the potentiality of the porosity concept in industrial applications:

MODELLING EXPLOSIONS IN REALISTIC GEOMETRY WITH PDRFOAM
