Hi all,

I am interested doing a melting/solidification simulation with compressibleInterFoam, where there would be two phases, one solid/liquid with melting phase change capability, and one gas with no phase change capability.

Following the thread in the link below, I was able to add fvOptions to compressibleInterFoam, thereby enabling the capability to use solidificationMeltingSource with this solver:

Problem in using new "fvOptions" called "solidificationMeltingSource"

My problem is that fvOptions/solidificationMeltingSource is applied to the entire domain, and I want to restrict it to only portions of the domain where the solid/liquid phase fraction is > 0. I am new to programming in and working with OpenFoam, so if anyone has either big picture advice on where to start with this, or more detailed advice on what parts of the code/solvers/etc need modification, I would be very grateful to hear from you.

Thank you!

Any thoughts? Perhaps a recommendation on the right sub-forum for this question?

Thanks!

Hi,
I'm also interested to use melting/solidification source term with compressibleInterFoam. Just wondering whether you managed to use it successfully.

Thank you.
