Condensation modeling in OpenFoamI am doing CFD simulation of SAGD process of heavy oil reservoir using OpenFoam. So I need a solver to simulate the case which contains following features.
1.) Multiphase model - Three phases (Water, Steam,Oil) 2.) Incompressible 3.) Explicit handling of Porous media 4.) Should solve energy equation 5.) Need to have condensation model (Steam to water) Hence I decided to use PorousInterFoam solver for this case but I need it to modify and add Energy Equation, Condensation model and three phases. So can anybody pleases give me any clue how to modify this solver? Another thing I did not find any examples/cases under porousInterFoam solver. So it is great pleasure if somebody help me to find a case which has been solved using PorousInterFoam. It is highly appreciated if somebody can help me in this regard. Thank you Deshaka Kottage |

Hi Deshaka,
I am also working on the same topic. do you have any leads... Kindly help. Regards Unnikrishnan. |

hello,
You will need to do some coding ... I would start from multiphaseInterFoam instead, then look inside PorousInterFoam to see how to add porous zone in your solver, then look at http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...interfoam.html to add energy equation (interTempFoam) For condensation model, you should add a scalar + coupling to the liquid phase. Not so easy, but this is clearly why OpenFoam is fun. Good luck, olivier |

I want simulate Condensation with interFoam, i know,shuld modified the solver by adding source term and energy equation, i can implemented the energy equation but i dont have idea how adding the source term...can you guide me how modified the solver for condensation? Regards, |
