Decicon is on a distinguished road
Good afternoon everyone,

I'm up a certain creek that won't be named without a paddle. I'm working on a master's thesis that involves multiphase flow through a porous medium with nuclear heat generation. The full description will be further down. The issue is the multiphase computational fluids professor left, and now I have no thesis advisor who actually knows anything about the topic.

The project is going to be in OpenFOAM and I received training using the CFD Direct version. In comes problem 2: my HPC cluster on campus couldn't figure out how to install OpenFOAM10 so I'm stuck using ESI OpenFOAM v2212.

I've found a module for multiphase flow through porous media that includes heat transfer called porousMultiphaseFoam that I'm pretty sure can do what I need, but I'm struggling to even get started. The bonus is if I'm stuck using ESI OpenFOAM, I can probably use GeN-FOAM for the nuclear part of it.

I'll be honest, I don't have a lot of money, and I'll probably have to pay in installments, but I want to get this done, and I want to do it well. I need an advisor who can advise on multiphase flow through porous media to get me on track and help me with some of the technical aspects of OpenFOAM.

Here's the full problem description:
-RAS of multiphase flow through porous media (no interface capturing)
-rotating reference frame (or NCC)
-One of two things
-implementation of a heating source term as a function of radius
-coupling with a neutronics code (using GeN-FOAM or coupling w/
