Dear foamers,

i want to simulate a case of flowing of two solutions separated by membrane, it is well knon that there is analogy between heat and mass transfer, so i can use a solver which silmulate with heat transfer. my question is how i can simulte osmotic pressure generated by the difference in concentration.

thanks in advance,

Hi,
just saw an presentation that might be of interest for you

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4f...it?usp=sharing An OpenFOAM Representation of Forward Osmosis Membrane Desalination": by James Koch of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at WUSTL

seen on
https://sites.google.com/site/midwes...-group-meeting

maybe there will be some material from the people @ http://openfuelcell.sourceforge.net/
