Hi,

I'm curious how the void fraction is taken into account in the "new" sprayFoam solver - if at all. I have searched the source code and found the voidFraction class, but it's not clear to me how the the link to the continuous phase is made - again if it is done at all!

Hope somebody can explain it briefly and/or point out some further reading on that topic.

So far I have been using the dieselFoam stuff, where void fraction is definitely not taken into account (as stated here DieselFoam spray).

Best regards,
Armin

still the same answer. it isn't.

look at the momentum equation for instance, only rho and U in there.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Well, I assumed it since I saw no evidence in the mass or momentum equation. I just wanted to be sure to not miss something.
