XiFoam Case
Dear all,

I want to finish an XiFoam case. I am actually interested in creating a combustion case for premixed Hydrogen and Oxygen mixture that can ignite in a confined place and cause turbulence so I can visualise/create a DDT (deflagration to detonation transition).

I have the stl file geometry along with the mesh ready and I know what I want. I need someone that can quickly provide good boundary conditions and a good decision on the types of solvers that I need to use and perhaps some help pn how to extract some results if needed

This shouldn't take more than a few hours to an experienced user of XiFoam. ;)

Please reply quickly as I need the case soon.

Thank you

XiFoam hydrogen
Dear Stratos,

I am curious if you were able to begin your simulations. I wish to undertake premixed hydrogen air simulations using XiFoam.

I am very new to OpenFoam but I believe the first step in this process is to modify Gulders.C to implement a hydrogen laminar flame speed model.

I was wondering if you have had any success with your simulations.

Kind regards,

Dear Stratos,

Could you please take the time to update me on the success of your simulations?

Many thanks,
