Dear all,

I have just faced with OpenFOAM. I want to know if it can be used for my problem.

My problem is determination of macrosegregation in a continuous casting system, with consideration of thermo-solutal buoyancy. Some equations need to be solved: heat eqn, flow eqn (with k-epsilon turbulence) and species conservation eqn.

Do you think that OpenFOAM is a proper tool for my problem? Is there any prepared solver for this problem, or I should start creating my solver from base?

Very thanks.

definitely,
I don't think but that there are any prepared solver for it, but a little inspiration from existing multiphaseflow/heat transfer solvers should do the trick.
Do you have a particular model you want to implement?

If you want to model something like this:

OpenFoam is definitely the proper tool
