Deshaka_Kottage is on a distinguished road
I 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

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 Diverging result for Temperature field in interFoam
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

Hi 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?
