Hi All,

Does any one have a Lagrangian particle tracking tutorial that I could use? Doesn't look like there is one in the tutorial folder in OpenFOAM.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Senthil,

you can try the dieselFoam solver, which is an Euler-/Lagrange solver originally created for spray combustion. However you can suppress the combustion to only simulate a two phase flow with Lagrangian particle tracking. For this solver there is also a tutorial available.

All the best,
Sebastian

I'm currently looking at icoLagrangianFoam [1] and trying to understand it. However I already have trouble with the terminology. Why is it called Lagrangian Particle Tracking? Which of Lagrange's equations are involved in it?

Hi Andrew

This thesis might answer your question about equations.

copy/paste from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrang...the_flow_field
In fluid dynamics and finite-deformation plasticity the Lagrangian specification of the flow field is a way of looking at fluid motion where the observer follows an individual fluid parcel as it moves through space and time.[1][2] Plotting the position of an individual parcel through time gives the pathline of the parcel. This can be visualized as sitting in a boat and drifting down a river.

The Eulerian specification of the flow field is a way of looking at fluid motion that focuses on specific locations in the space through which the fluid flows.[1][2] This can be visualized by sitting on the bank of a river and watching the water pass the fixed location.

@niklas Thx I didn't find this article!

I'm also reading your thesis it's very interesting

Hello Andrew Ryan
Sorry for bother you but I'm stock with a conceptual problem in openFoam 2.2.2.
The issue is that I'm solving a diesel spray using sprayFoam as a solver, so I already found all the equations implicit in the Eulerian frame but the equations that involve the Lagrangrian frame I can't found the .c files that make reference of it.
The question is which are the files that make reference in the Lagrangian frame.
Thanks a lot
Kind Regards
