Hi Foamers
The following thread discussed the implementation of compressibleInterFoam.
Formulation in compressibleInterFoam

I am confused with the implementation of dgdt in the file pEqn.H
In this thread, we can get.
dgdt = { ( psi2 / rho2) - (psi1 / rho1) } DpDt
However, in the implementation, it gives

dgdt = (pos(alpha2)*psi2/rho2 - pos(alpha1)*(psi1/rho1))*(p_rghEqnComp & p_rgh);

Is this right? shoud it be
dgdt = (psi2/rho2 - psi1/rho1))*(p_rghEqnComp & p_rgh);

where are alpha1 and alpha2 from?

would you please give me some tips?

Best Regards, Junwei

I got it. pos is just a sign function.

Hi,

I am trying to run a simulation using compressibleinterfoam application. I changed the alpha1 to alphaair, alphawater and alphadrop by creating each file separately. But when I try to run the code I get an error telling:

It is appreciable if you can help me in solving this.
Thank you.
