physics1 is on a distinguished road
Hi all,
Ive modified the scalar tranport foam to solve the equation d(rho)/dt + div(rho, U) =0 where rho is concentrated in a sphere. The sphere moves the way I want it to but the concentration diffuses as it moves. I was wondering if this is something I should fix in the solver or something I could fix with the inputs. If you could point me in the right directoin it would be greatly appreciated.
