Solidification
 
Hi,
I'm very new to OpenFOAM is it possible model phase changes? I want to model ice formation in a pipe?

Thanks

hi friend
there is a solver in openFoam (interPhaseChangeFoam) which can simulate phase change based on cavitation ( change in pressure ) from liquid to gas or vice versa

Thanks nimasam,

That's interesting to know, should i assume that this can not be used for solidification? Are there any other alternatives?

cheers

HEllo,

Have you managed to do solidification in OpenFoam??? I am really interested in this scope!!

hi
Have you succeeded in solidification in OpenFoam?
I am facing a similar problem and I want to model the aircraft in-fight ice accretion using openfoam or fluent
please help me about this problem
ThankS
