Hi everyone,

I am trying to use rhoSimpleFoam for the first time. As a starting point, I copied the tutorial
rhoTurbFoam. In the file thermophysicalProperties, concerning the mixture, I don't see any specification for the thermal conductivity k.
In the user guide, it says that the transport coefficients of the mixture are used to evaluate mu, k and alpha, but in the syntax examples given, only the 2 coefficients for the Sutherland law are specified.
So I wonder how k and alpha are evaluated?

Thanks for your help,


Does someone know the syntax to specify it
