interFoam solver for air injection
Dear Foamers,

I would like to use the interFOAM solver for my personal test case.
Starting from the :
The example shows the ascent of a bubble of air through the column.
I would like to add an injection of a continuous air flow rate from the bottom.
How could I add the air flow rate ? Should I add it in the setFields ?
I looked for many examples in the tuto and I did not found examples to show the flow rate design. May be I missed something.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for advance !

Kind regards

If you look in the tutorials there are several bubble colums. Have a look at those

Good luck and happy foaming

Hi Wouter !

Thanks for the answer, Yes I found many interesting examples. I'm running some of them to get hand with OpenFoam.
Do you know if I can find example which use for example gas or steam injection through a nozzle into a column or a tank ?

Again many thanks !

Kind regards

Hi Belkadi,

I am trying to simulate a oil tank with an air injection. Did you manage to solve your task? Can you explain to me how did you manage to have the air flow rate?
