I am new in openfoam. I want to use openfoam to solve a problem of platelet transport in an artery. it involves some spherical hard particle of size 1micrometer in a tube of 3mm diameter. it is a transient flow as the inlet profile varies in time. I wonder if openfoam is capable of solving such a problem.
I am really new into this. can anyone help me how to get started fast on it?
Is the tutorial working well? is there any tutorial including particle tracking method?

Hi Muhammad,

There is a tutorial folder inside OpenFOAM-1.6.x/tutorials/lagrangian
Here you can find differents solvers for particle tracking, by the way, there is only a tutorial on particle tracking and it's dieselFOAM.

Check out this:
