I only have advisors this week. I am at a OpenFOAM course, which finishes on Friday.
fv::gaussConvectionScheme<scalar>(mesh, phi, UDs).fvmDiv(phi, psi), This line is to calculate div(phi, psi). The begining is only to specify to the program how to calculate it. And the div(U) is repeated.

Wow, it is great. Thank you very much.
By the way, what a OF course are you studying? Do you have some documents or websites to share? Sandy sandy.lee37@gmail.com

Hi, everybody, I am trying to use the interPhaseChangeFoam in OpenFOAM1.6, and just meet the same problem how to set MULES::implicit in the fvSolution file. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Best regards, Chiven

Hi Chiven, is there the tutorial about InterPhaseChangeFoam in OF1.6? I use the OF1.5.
 gamma MULESImplicit { maxIter 1000; nLimiterIter 10; maxUnboundedness 1; CoCoeff 0.2; solver PBiCG { preconditioner DILU; tolerance 1e10; relTol 0; }; };

Hi, Sandy, thanks for your reply.
I have justed used the similar setting like yours, but failed. At this time, I have NOT run the interPhaseChangeFoam successfully in OpenFOAM1.6. Code:
alpha1 { MULESImplicit { maxIter 1000; nLimiterIter 10; maxUnboundedness 1; CoCoeff 0.2; solver PBiCG { preconditioner DILU; tolerance 1e10; relTol 0; } } } Chiven Quote:

Hello
I am planning to modify the interfoam solver of OF1.6.x with the implcitMULES and use an LES simulation. I am studying the breakup of 2D liquid sheets. I have already run some simulations in which i see that the solution is very much dependent in the CFL number I want to know th experience of other interFOAM users who have used an implicitMULES. Do you really find a difference in the solution of two explicitMULES and implicitMULES. And if yes what was the improvement. Is it advicable to give the implicitMULES a try. Will it allow me to use higher CFL numbers. bye with regards K.Suresh kumar

Hello interFoam and interphasechange users,
I implemented the implicit::MULES in interFoam in OF1.6.x . Thanks to Niels and pbohorquez.and ran it with the LES model on some preliminary test cases. I can already see that the results are much better than the explicit::MULES case. So i have decided to further look into the implicit::MULES solver. I already read the posts in this discussion. That gave me a good idea about the form of the equation that is being solved in the two cases. But I would like to know more about the discretization of the transport equation when i am using an implicit::MULES, because i really dont get anything about the parameters that i specify in the fvSolution gamma PBiCG { MULESImplicit { maxIter 1000; nLimiterIter 10; maxUnboundedness 1; CoCoeff 0.2; } preconditioner DILU; tolerance 1e06; relTol 0; }; so it would be very useful to me if anybody gives some explanation about the discretization in the case of MULES implicit. with regards K.Suresh kumar

hi friend
the correct form of alpha fvSolution is like below : alpha1 MULESImplicit { maxIter 1000; nLimiterIter 10; maxUnboundedness 1; CoCoeff 0.2; solver PBiCG; preconditioner DILU; tolerance 1e06; relTol 0; };

In order to strictly restrict alpha in [0,0.52], I am now considering to use MULES in case of bubbly flow. I have a question here since in Weller's scheme, there is a compression term (eqn 4.13, Rusche). And it is said "The artificial term is only active in the thin interface region because of the multiplication term gamma(1gamma)". It is true in case of liquidvapor with clear interface which only exists somewhere. However in bubbly flow, the interface could be everywhere. I dont know if it is appropriate to use this scheme in my case. Thanks. // Kai

You can try them, respectively. I guess, there are not differences in results but in the performance of convergence ...

Hello Suresh,
What are the steps to update interfoam from mules::explicit to mules::implicit?? Advanced thanks, Pablo

Pablo, simply replace the call to MULES::explicitSolve in alphaEqn.H to MULES::implicitSolve and recompile. You will need some extra entries in the fvSolution file as shown in a post earlier in this thread, and that's it.

Thanks Anton,
It is working, i copied from interphase tutorial; alpha1 { maxUnboundedness 1e5; CoCoeff 2; maxIter 5; nLimiterIter 2; solver PBiCG; preconditioner DILU; tolerance 1e12; relTol 0.1; }; but what mean cocoeff,maxiter and nlimiter??

Hi, why you not read some papers by Dr. Lu Naixian and deduce those equations?

Hi,
I think, it is not as trivial as you suggest in a not very friendly way. In addition, it is link to a query often ask in this forum and As far as I have searched I did not find an answer. If someone have any interrest on this, in can give some suggestion. Bye

I'm also confused. Have you been successful in finding why the volumetric source is formulated with this coefficient? It is the same as rho_mixture / (rho_1 * rho_2).
