Hi

I'm new to OpenFoam. I'd like to know what formulations are used in each solver. I was wondering if there is a documentation providing this information or not.

Thanks

Send a message via Yahoo to nimasam
there is no documentation for each solver, maybe you find for some of these solvers
by google, but in general nope
you need to dig the solver by reading code, searching in forum for your questions and so on, it is a try and error procedure

You can have a look at
http://www.openfoam.com/features/standard-solvers.php
for a list of all standard solvers.

For some solvers (unfortunately not all) there is also additional information available at
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Main_OFSolvers

Kind regards,

Thanks for your reply.
I'm looking for formulations of "Multiphase flow solvers".

Well, you have Volume of Fluid, Two-Fluids and Mixture Models, for the first two you can check the H. Rusche's thesis

http://powerlab.fsb.hr/ped/kturbo/Op...chePhD2002.pdf

for mixture, the Brennan's thesis

http://powerlab.fsb.hr/ped/kturbo/Op...BrennanPhD.pdf
