Introduce a drag model
I wanted to introduce a drag model call "Tam" into the twoPhaseEulerFoam solver in OF v1.7.1. However, the solver made a complain. I added Tam.C to "files" located at the following folder. Please let me know what mistakes I did in Tam.C.

There is somewhere an error in calculating a square root. I suppose the value of K becomes negative in your calculation. Double check your formula or consider bounding the value of K: max(SMALL,4.5/...)
Edit: You can see that your minimum volume fraction is negative (Min(alpha) = 0.0272179), This is not physical but if it works with everything else I would replace all 'alpha' in your code with 'alphaBounded' and add above: volScalarField alphaBounded = min(1.0,max(0.0,alpha)); 
Thank you for your comment.
