Hi guys,

I am using coalChemistryFoam. I want to know the equations which coalChemistryFoam uses to calculate the velocities, energy, radiation, etc. Where can I find them? There are a lot of research papers about coal combustion, but the source terms in the governing equations of these papers are quite different. So I want to know what the source term equations in the coal combustion governing equations that coalChemistryFoam uses.

for example, the UEqn.H:
fvVectorMatrix UEqn
fvm::ddt(rho, U)
+ fvm::div(phi, U)
+ turbulence->divDevRhoReff(U)
+ coalParcels.SU(U)
+ limestoneParcels.SU(U)
+ fvOptions(rho, U)



if (pimple.momentumPredictor())
solve(UEqn == -fvc::grad(p));

K = 0.5*magSqr(U);
I don't understand coalParcels.SU(U), what's the equation for this term?

I need your help! Thank you.
