Hello,

I am trying to solve a 2-phase flow problem using bubbleFoam. Is there some documentation on how this solver works (like: which equations are solved? What is the meaning of the constants used? I tried studying the source files and that helped, but didn't make things completely clear to me...)?
And is there documentation on the rest of the solvers?
Oh, one last question: Is there a version of the User Guide newer than the version 1.0 (8th December 2004)? Somehow I get the impression that OpenFOAM can do much more than what is listed in this User Guide.

Thanks in advance,

Sita

As we have said before we will write more documentation when we have money to pay for it. Currently OpenCFD has a total income this year of $400 to cover all developments, release, maintenance and documentation and as you can imagine that doesn't go very far.

That would be interesting, how much would I need to pay you for some explanation on bubbleFoam? I'll ask my boss if there's some budget left to buy me manuals.
