Difference between UEqn in sonicFoam & Theory

Hi Foamers ,
I found a difference between UEqn in sonicFoam and Ferziger's book (Computational Methods for fluid Dynamics ). In the code for UEqn in sonicFoam we have : Code:
fvVectorMatrix UEqn ( fvm::ddt(rho, U) + fvm::div(phi, U) + turbulence>divDevRhoReff(U) ); solve(UEqn == fvc::grad(p)); But in the Ferziger's book (generally in theory) there is another equation : The last term in two equations are different . Please guide me that what is the origin of this difference ? And please correct me if I am wrong. I appreciate any help from you. Thanks and best regards, Sasan.

Your ferziger's equation comes from incompressible theory, no? You haven't any term

Dear sasanghomi,
I found the same incongruence some time ago. I think that is a bug, but if you have some time you can review the Code:
divDevRhoReff is missing Best regards. Felipe G.

The term with 2/3 rho k is present in the equation. It is taken into account in the pressure (in the equation p = ps + 2/3 rho k). The results you have, after simulations, give you a pressure wich contains the real pressure and turbulent kinetic energy.

Hi,
have a closer look at the function: divDevRhoReff and you will find your "missing" term Regards, Christian

Hi to all,
Can you say me the OF version ? because at least in OF1.7.0 I can't find this term. http://www.cfdonline.com/Forums/ope...sonicfoam.html Maybe I looked in a wrong location in the code. sonicFoam pressure equation. Code:
rho = thermo.rho(); volScalarField rUA = 1.0/UEqn.A(); U = rUA*UEqn.H(); surfaceScalarField phid ( "phid", fvc::interpolate(psi) *( (fvc::interpolate(U) & mesh.Sf()) + fvc::ddtPhiCorr(rUA, rho, U, phi) ) ); for (int nonOrth=0; nonOrth<=nNonOrthCorr; nonOrth++) { fvScalarMatrix pEqn ( fvm::ddt(psi, p) + fvm::div(phid, p)  fvm::laplacian(rho*rUA, p) ); pEqn.solve(); if (nonOrth == nNonOrthCorr) { phi = pEqn.flux(); } } #include "rhoEqn.H" #include "compressibleContinuityErrs.H" Code:
tmp<fvVectorMatrix> kEpsilon::divDevRhoReff(volVectorField& U) const { return (  fvm::laplacian(muEff(), U)  fvc::div(muEff()*dev2(fvc::grad(U)().T())) ); } Best regards.

Which file have this equation for pressure ? Can you explain more and clarify the issue ? Thanks and best regards, Sasan.

You will not find this term because it is into the pressure term. More clearly, the pressure in your equation isn't the real pressure. It is the real pressure+ 2/3 rho k.
But it is close to the real pressure because k << p
