Hi all,

I modifyed the flamelet solver (libOpenSmoke) and used the nice feature in the OF 2.2.x for the equations for

  • mixture fraction Z
  • variance of mixture fraction Z
  • enthalpy H


In the old code I implemented the Sp term in the code:


Code:
        (
            fvm::div(phi, Z)
                    - fvm::Sp(fvc::div(phi), Z)        
                        - fvm::laplacian(turbulence->muEff()/sigmat, Z)
        )
In the new version I used it without:

Code:
        (
            fvm::div(phi, Z)    
                        - fvm::laplacian(turbulence->muEff()/sigmat, Z)
        )
but therefor I added bounded schemes (fvSchemes):
Code:
    div(phi,H)          bounded Gauss limitedLinear 1;
    div(phi,Z)          bounded Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 1;
    div(phi,Zvar)       bounded Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 0.25;
This settings give an identical simulation and the validation was 1:1.

OF was warning like:
Code:

ExecutionTime = 651.17 s  ClockTime = 654 s
and so I used bounded schemes for all div equations.
If I do that, I get a strange solution (picture).

can someone tell why the values are so different?

picture bound: all schemes are bounded Gauss
picture unbound: only Z,Zvar,H are bounded

Thanks in advance,
Tobi

Hi all,

maybe I made a mistake due to too less time and very tierd. I ll have a look at that the next days and Keep you posted!

Tushar@cfd is on a distinguished road
Code:
    div(phi,H)          bounded Gauss limitedLinear 1;     
    div(phi,Z)          bounded Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 1;     
    div(phi,Zvar)       bounded Gauss limitedLimitedLinear 1 0 0.25;
Hello,

I have a doubt, I am not sure whether I am right or wrong.

I think when you are using the keyword "bounded" and "limited" together the warning might have displayed in the terminal. May be with any other bounded scheme (i.e., instead of limited) this will go off.
