Hi everybody,
I would like two know how to mix two different gases, each one with its own inlet, into a valve in a complete mixing. I was told to try with multiphase module but so far i couldn't find a way to resolve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

You could use Species Transport model to simulate mixing of 2 different gases. If your application is not IC engine related, I would suggest to use General Species Transport.
In the inlets you can specify the mass fractions for the gases you like.

Thank you so much, but still now i'm not able to to get proper results. I am using the general method to indtroduce the composition of syngas (O2,H2,CH4,CO,CO2,N2) like species and the i set the molar fraction in boundary conditions but it always diverge. I tried changing underrelaxion factor or equations but it is useless.
Thanks.

Check mesh, then relax a little your time discretisation.
It diverges in which equation? It diverges suddenly or in some time? You can alway put your *.fla file or at least par of it...
