Dear all,

I'm in the need of getting the most accurate documentation about the implementation of the fvDOM method in OpenFOAM. I need to explain the theory behind the method used by the programme in my thesis but I can't find the proper documentation on my own. I've been searching all over the net and I have found a lot of good papers where the Discrete Ordinate Method is described. I also found a lot of documentation about the Finite Volumes Method for solving the RTE, both methods are meant to be very close one to another as far as I found. However, what leads me to a confussion is the name of the method within OpenFOAM: Finite Volume Discrete Ordinates Method. Is it a combination between both methods? How is it working actually?

Any hint you can give me or paper you can share with me will be of a huge help!

Many thanks in advance!

Web site where I present my Final Thesis developed with OpenFOAM:
The case I talk about in this site was solved with chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and involves radiation. If you are interested in these matters, you are invited to come in!

I'm newbie in OpenFOAM's world and not an English-speaking, so if I make any mistake a correction will be welcome!
