Besmellah,

Hi all,

I want to simulate the mass transfer of an immiscible liquid rising drop in a column of organic solution. Is there any body who know which model of openfoam can I use to simulate the phenomenone?

Regards

hi buddy
tell more about details of ur simulation.
and what's "organic solution"

Besmellah,

Dear Nimasam,

Sorry. There was a mistake in problem description.
An organic drop rises in a solution of water+acid (20% acid dissolved in water) and absorb the acid inside.
I want to simulate the mass transfer with open_foam.

I am waiting your response.

Regards,

Salman

hi dear salman
look at solver description here :
http://openfoam.com/features/standard-solvers.php

however im not sure whether i understand you or not ? is ur model there phase or two phase? is it mixture or not ? is it immiscible or not ?

as i know none of two phase flow solvers in multiphase flow solver consider phaseChange except interPhaseChangeFoam which is considering phase change based on cavitation but for solving a two immiscible liquids system u can use interFoam as a main solver and add ur mass transfer equations in it

Dear Salman
Hello
I am in agree with Nimasam. You can use interFoam as a main solver and add your mass transfer equations in it.
Good luck

Hi Salman,

I am also trying to do the similar problem. In my case toluene drop is rising in stagnant water medium.

How far did you manage to with your problem?
