Hello again,

this time a simple question to all the experienced users in the community.
I want to use OF for polymer flows through dies, since I work on a project concerning melted polymer behaviour for my studies.
Which solver are you using? Which solvers are the most fitting? Would you mind giving me some advices regarding the boundary conditions or other tricky things?
Right now, I am using the nonNewtonianIcoFoam solver, but by the amount of available solvers in OF I wondered, if there are other useful solvers?

Thank you sharing your thoughts and opinions!

May viscoelasticFluideFoam be a good solver for you.
