About the solidification?
IN the library-case Y302 for simulating steel solidification in a thin-slab caster, the standard KE-EP turbulent model may be used, but its Y302.GRN doen't use the wall-fuction with the moving solidification interface, I don't know how can it can get the correct result?
At present, in the solidification and flow field simulation, Launder and Sharma (or Jones and Launder)Low-reynolds number turbulence model is widely applied, because it doesn't need to track un-knowened solidification interface. but PHOENICS doesn't provide this turbulent model, Could you give some advice about which turbulent model should be selected from the PHOENICS turbulent models when solidification and fluid flow is simulated?
