Dear all,

I worked several years on low-fidelity CFD simulations and LES as well, but I have to run DNS of passive scalar transport for a new project.

As I am quite a beginner with DNS, do you have any nice codes with tutorials to advice ? Would be even better if some tutorials are made for scalar transport!

Any views on DNSfoam?

Thanks in advance for any kind of suggestions!

You can use any Navier-Stokes code, also a standard second order FD-based.
Your real problem is the computational cost for your simulation, have you estimate an order of magnitude of the number of grid node required for your flow problem?

For what I can say, Nek5000 is the openfoam equivalent for DNS, meaning that it has a large user base (for DNS of course), is used at universities and research centers and is actively maintained. Also, it is not more difficult to use.

Still, differently from OF, it is seriously verified and validated.

If you know how to LES, you know how to DNS. LES is wayy more complicated. DNS requires 2 brain cells.

dnsFoam is not a general purpose dns solver, it's for turbulence in a box problems. dnsFoam has a little random source term to offset the dissipation that occurs when you do turbulence in a box. Otherwise, dnsFoam is just icoFoam, i.e. incompressible and piso. You can use just about any other openfoam solver and it would support more options, like non-piso solvers and compressible N-S instead of purely incompressible N-S. You could also just turn off the source term in dnsFoam, but then it now a worse version of icoFoam.
