multiphase solver for non-Newtonian fluidHello Members,
The static mixing of non-Newtonian fluid and nanofluid is to be simulated using OpenFOAM. A two concentric inlets and one outlet Static Mixer with the 100% non-Newtonian fluid flowing in through one of the inlets and a nanofluid consisting of 50% nano-particle in 50% non-Newtonian fluid flowing in through the other inlet. My question is, is there any single solver that can handle this problem or is there a way of rewriting the multiphase solver program for Newtonian fluids to solve this case of non-Newtonian Fluid? Secondly, how can i handle this case of double inlet? I have only handled cases with only one inlet and one outlet. I am a new user of OpenFOAM and have not much experience. Thanks while waiting your respond. |

questionhello;
excuse me I have a question about nano fluid flow in openfoam. I want to simulate an incompressible laminar nano fluid flow and heat transfer in steady state. I added energy equation to simpleFoam to obtain termal field for simple incompressible fluid, but I don't know should I use another solver instead of simpleFoam or should change same solver for nano fluid?!:confused: and what's the other solver or how can I change simpleFoam for this type of fluids? |
