Simulating with coupled energy and navierstokes
Hi everyone,

As the title says it all, I'm looking for a good start to implement coupled equations of navierstokes and energy. Has it been done ? ( not in usual commercial codes) If yes, can anyone please redirect me to the publication, thesis or the respective literature in which it has been done?
(I am not familiar so much with the algorithms for this case)

More exactly explained; I want to have the temperature dependency of fluid properties (density, viscosity) so that a two sided coupling could be generated. And moreover I do not want to use the Bousinesque approach, since I have high temperature gradients.

Application: two phase flow
