Hi OpenFOAMer's
My task is to model a sludge digester tank, approximately 12m diameter, for a waste water treatment plant. The sludge liquid is continuously mixed by pumped air. Laboratory tests have indicated the viscosity of the sludge. Im planning to use bubbleFoam to model the air and liquid mixing interaction. My question is;

1 How fine does the mesh have to be to accurately model the gas plume
2 Can bubbleFoam be used for non-Newtonian fluids

Many thanks
Franz
