liquid in Thermophysical properties
Hi to all

I want to use the chtMultiRegionFoam with a liquid, but I don't know how to set it with the constant/thermophysicalProperities dict. Does anyone know how to do that?

Thankyou in advance

Hi everyone,
I've created a multiRegion solver for fluids with polynomial thermophysical properties.

(transient, incompressible flow, density is a function of the temperature => Ueqn, heqn are based on the navier-stokes-equations for compressible fluids, pEqn is solved for an incompressible flow)

The solver-set-up requires the implementation of a new thermophysical model as shown in other threads in this forum:

e. g.

A detailled discreption of the solver will be provided the next days (buoyantRhoMultiRegionFoamDoku.pdf, in German).
I'll add some test cases in a few days.

Note: the buoyantRhoPimpleFoam-solver is only for fluid computations, the buoyantRhoMultiRegionFoam-solver is able to solve solid and fluid regions, the fluid algorithms are the same!

Try it, have fun :-)
