Source Term calculation for multiphase reactive flows [CoalChemistryFoam]Hello Foam Users,
So I am starting to understand how and where the source terms for coal particle combustion is calculated. I found out that in the solver coalChemistryFoam the UEqn.H and hEqn.H is as follows: UEqn.HfvVectorMatrix UEqn ( fvm::ddt(rho, U) + fvm::div(phi, U) + turbulence->divDevRhoReff(U) == rho.dimensionedInternalField()*g + coalParcels.SU() + limestoneParcels.SU() ); UEqn.relax(); if (momentumPredictor) { solve(UEqn == -fvc::grad(p)); hEqn.HfvScalarMatrix hEqn ( fvm::ddt(rho, h) + mvConvection->fvmDiv(phi, h) - fvm::laplacian(turbulence->alphaEff(), h) == DpDt + coalParcels.Sh() + limestoneParcels.Sh() + enthalpySource.Su() + radiation->Sh(thermo) ); hEqn.relax(); hEqn.solve(); thermo.correct(); radiation->correct(); I understand that the source terms from particle momentum is given to CFD cell as coalParcels.SU() and from particle energy equation is given to CFD cell as coalParcels.Sh(). My question is: 1. Where are these source terms calculated. 2. has any one tried to dsitribute these source terms over surrounding cells/nodes Thanks, Nir |
