Fluid dynamics in zero-g
I am new to computational fluid dynamics and have some questions about OpenFOAM's capabilities. Could this library simulate a spinning fixed amount fluid in zero g, taking into account gravity? (It would be nice if it could account for thermal radiation/viscosity change, but not necessary)
Hello, dear Charles, all the standard solvers are listed in,
Maybe you are talking about star formation?
Or do you refer to parabolic flights? Then you still have the gravitational force of the earth and there is nothing special when it comes to fluid dynamics. Try the icoFoam or interFoam solvers for the start.
Without further explanations I'm afraid nobody will be able to tell you how to take into account gravity if there is no gravity.
