hi Niels,
thanks for the help.it is one fluid per inlet and also i first run the case(successfully) in icoFoam with one fluid and this is a new dimension to the problem(2 different fluids).how can i ,therefore, modify my earlier source code to cater for these two different fluids?or i have to try a new solver (interfoam)completely?
thank you once again

Hi Davey

The easiest would be to look at the damBreak case. Try to run it an see what happens. When you understand how you should set the boundary conditions etc, the apply your geometry and solve using the interFoam solver.

Hi Neil,
i am trying the dambreak case now but with no success.blockmesh gives me this warning :
From function polyMesh::polyMesh(... construct from shapes...)
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyMeshFromShapeMesh.C at line 577
Found 10 undefined faces in mesh; adding to default patch.
moreover i do not understand the gamma.org and pd files.i think there is a problem with the block faces or the blocks themselves but i am at a loss.i know it might be a bit stupid but i just cant seem to make it any better.any ideas?
and also isn't there any way i can modify my earlier source code to solve this extended case of mine?
thanks in advance

Hi Davey

I suggest that you read on from page 55 in the User Guide. It will take you trough the setup procedure of the damBreak case.
Gamma is the quantity which tells you whether it is phase 1 or phase 2 which is present in the considered volume. pd is the dynamic pressure.

From my point of view it is significantly easier to use any of the multiphase solvers in stead of modifying icoFoam as it is for one phase only.

hi Neil,
when i run the code on my case i get the following error message:

any ideas on how to turn this around?

No, but try to sent me your entire setup, and I will give it a look today or tomorrow.

I think icoFoam cannot manage heat transfert. It doesn't solve any energy equation.

You define a T file but i think icoFoam just doesn't use it.

The haet transfer solvers are given in the User guide (U-84)

In your T file, the air at the inlet is at 295 K, but you don't have any other surface heated or at a different temperature.
In this case, there is no heat transfert. For example, you should impose a temperature or a heat flux on your fixedWall boundary.

I don't understand your problem. Water or air, you can impose a temperature on the wall for example, no?

fixedWalls
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform 350;
}

The fact that you are using water is related to the constant/thermophysicalProperties file where you have to choose the right properties, models,.. See chapter 7 of the User Guide.

Hallo Eric,

thats all...
thanks can you help me
really thanks
