Default Four-way coupling simulation of coal combustion or biomass gasification

Dear all,
I want to carry out the coal combustion or biomass gasification in four-way coupling, (that is, the particle-particle interaction, particle-fluid interaction are both taken into account). I know that DPMFoam using DEM method and coalChemistryFoam are included in OpenFOAM. Although DPMFoam is four-way coupling, it cannot model combustion; coalChemistryFoam can model combustion, however, it is two-way coupling.
In biomass gasification, the size of particle is relatively large so that four-way coupling should be utilized. Is there anyone who has done the similar work? I want to implement the four-way coupling into coalChemistryFoam, please give me some ideas how to start with.
Any comment is welcomed, thanks for reading!

Hi Shuai_W,

your project seems hard. Did you do that?
I am working on coalChemistryFoam too.

hi amin_jalalian and Shuai_W.
i am new in using OpenFoam and I would simulate pulverized coal combustion but I know how. I performed the solver default coalChemistryFoam smoothly. I want to adjust the case file that I joined my geometry; but I do not know how to enter or to have all parameters in OpenFoam. Please I need your help ... Cordiament
