Dear all,

Based on the readCombustionProperties.H file below, seems like dieselFoam solver will only read "Cmix" value without caring about combustionProperties dictionary which states the timing, location and duration of the ignition.

----------------------------------------------------
Info<< "Reading combustion properties\n" << endl;

IOdictionary combustionProperties
(
IOobject
(
"combustionProperties",
runTime.constant(),
mesh,
IOobject::MUST_READ,
IOobject::NO_WRITE
)
);

dimensionedScalar Cmix
(
combustionProperties.lookup("Cmix")
);

-------------------------------------------------------

So, is the 'ignition' in dieselFoam can only be done if the gas temperature is high enough to ignite the fuel? If that's the case, ignition in dieselFoam is not similar to spark ignition. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks,
Fairus
