Hello everyone,

I want to know about Thermophysical models and properties used in OpenFOAM. So, can any one give me suggestion about liturature from where I can read the model equations and etc about it.

Regards,
Gitesh

you should find many things by searching through the files at:

OpenFOAM-2.1.0/src/thermophysicalModels/


other than that it depends on your physics.. is it biased toward chemistry?Lagrangian approaches?solid?liquid?heatTRanfer?compressible effects?

can't rly point a bible i guess, that's the beuty, if i may say, of CFD, you kinda gotta know a bit of everything, sometimes more than you thought you had

but you could check the physics books from Sears & Zemansky books

Hi,

if you need additonal thermo models, have a look at the OpenFOAM ext real gas branch.

Thank you for your help !!

I am not much familiar with OF. I am going to work with real gas assumption. Lucas can you say me what is the meaning of 'realGasEThermo + realGas_pEqn 4 rhoPisoFoam'.

BR,
Gitesh
