Hi,

I am trying to simulate flow behavior in inlet manifold of SI engine.

Its a two species flow air+(CNG-H2) blend, the flow is incompressible, turbulent. coldflow
From the userguide i thought the "twoLiquidMixingFoam" is suitable.

So is this is the best solver, or any other solver available in OpenFoam
Thanks in advance

if the medium is homogeneous, use icofoam with appropriate fluid properties. or, if it is having multiple inlets (non-premixed), air in one inlet and cng-h2 in another inlet, use reactingFoam by switching off the reactions.

Thanks for the reply.

The geometry, is an inlet manifold for four cylinder SI engine. It contains a plenum chamber and four runners. The fuel injector are placed in the runners. The air enters the manifold through the plenum chamber, and flow through the runner where it gets mixed with the fuel, and finally it enter the cylinder.

I will try using "reactingFoam".

Wat abt using "twoLiquidMixingFoam". I read the user guide, it says that it is for two incompressible fluids.
Wats your comment?

Thanks in Advance

The flow is assumed to be incompressible.
