Hey Tom,

Thanks for the reply! Yeh i have done everything you said already.... the only difference between your code and mine is the inclusion of smom_ which I don't have... Also did you mean the .C file rather than .H? as that's where the original move member function was declared.

I added some comments into solidParticle.C and these do not appear at any point during the run, so it's as if that code is never being run. Is that supposed to be the case?

Laura

The code I posted should definitely be in the solidparticlecloud.C file. If you have declared the functions in the .H file but not got them in the .C file then that's probably why there are no particles being injected. If you post your solidparticlecloud.h and .c files that would help me see your problem probably.

All the best

I think we agree, I was just clarifying because I think you made a typo in your previous comment

They look fine to me. I wonder if youre including the unedited versions by mistake. Do you have all the cloud .H and .C files in your main solver directory? Sorry I'm all out of ideas.

Hey guys
i am also trying to couple lagrangian eulerian approach. my problem is air-water system flowing in cylinder [annular two phase flow] now DROPLETS OF WATER which come into air must CONVERT TO LAGRANGIAN PARTICLE. next when these particle come into contact with water again they MUST CONVERT INTO EULERIAN form. so i guess i need two way coupling
i am trying to do this aurelia valor code. but can't understand how to convert water droplet which detaches from water film to droplet [liq droplet to particle]

You would need a spatial criterion based on resolution of
Your VoF simulation. This should determine where and when the interface is poorly resolved. Then you would identify those cells as a droplet/liquid structure
And simply replace them by Lagrangian particle.

The concept is rather simple but it needs an accurate implementation.

thanks mahdi.
but what do you mean spatial criterion based on vof resolution? i am thinking of implementing following algorithm
1. check all mesh cells and their vicinity for air, alpha=0, if yes, check volume?
2 set the volume criterion, Vcutoff
3 , if V<Vcutoff, delete volume from eulerian phase and replace with particle of same volume and calculate dia according to 4/3pi r^3
is this algorithm good enough??
i already have reverse algorithm from aurelia vallier's tutorial

This sound reasonable. By spatial resolution, I meant the something similar. Because the V_cutoff may depend on your grid resolution. But there is something else you should take care of: Imagine you check 3 cells in row with the same criterion, and you replace 3 droplets with the same volume in those cells, but in the actual situation, they may be one larger droplet/liquid structure connected to each other. In this case, you would replace one larger droplet with 3 smaller which in unphysical. I guess you would need a search algorithm to find all the droplet with their correct volume first, then replace them.

Wow. i didn't thought of case where droplet includes no of cell volumes. i have to change algorithm
so i am thinking how do i accomplish this droplet size? how to find the extent of droplet and total no cells it comprises and then do the rest??
u got any ideas?

you may find some remarks if you check the Vallier's PhD thesis. The topic is for bubble formation due to cavitation (similar problem with different application) There is a search algorithm in that. However, you first should get sure if this is a the right way for your
problem or not! then go for in-detail coding and implementation (which seems very costy).

thanks i got the thesis and there is algorithm defined for 2 way coupling.
and about bubbles?? right. yeah actually she is defining bubbles by solid particles bcz this is her initial work and later she has used Rayleigh plesset equation to account for varying bubble radius, so i'm quite sure she has implemented what i need for my work.
thanks mahdi!!!

Hi!

Sorry for jumping in the discussion. I am also working on something similar based on Aurelia's work. I have modified the inject and move functions though.

Instead of reading the positions, diameter, and velocity of Bubbles from particleProperties, I send them from interFoam as follows:

Code:
        Info<< "Evolving cloud" << endl;
        Info<<"g: " << g << " posP: " << posP << " dP: " << dP << " UP: " << UP << endl;
        particles.move(g,posP,dP,UP);
        Info<< "Cloud size = " << particles.size() << endl;
Code:
// Inject Function:
void Foam::solidParticleCloud::inject(solidParticle::trackingData &td, vector posP, scalar dP, vector UP)
{
    Info<<"Inject function called"<<endl;
    label cellI=1;
    label tetFaceI=1;
    label tetPtI=1;

    Info<<"findCellFacePt starting"<<endl;
    mesh_.findCellFacePt(posP, cellI, tetFaceI, tetPtI);
    Info<<"findCellFacePt ended"<<endl;
    Info<<"Adding a new particle"<<endl;
    solidParticle* ptr1 = new solidParticle(mesh_, posP, cellI, tetFaceI, tetPtI, dP, UP);
    Info<<"New particle added"<<endl;
    Info<<"Initial equilibrium radius"<<endl;
    ptr1->initialEquilibriumRadius(td);
    Info<<"Finally add particle"<<endl;
    Cloud<solidParticle>::addParticle(ptr1);
}
Code:
void Foam::solidParticleCloud::move(const dimensionedVector& g, vector posP, scalar dP, vector UP)
{

    Info<<"Move function called"<<endl;
    const volScalarField& rho = mesh_.lookupObject<const volScalarField>("rho");
    const volVectorField& U = mesh_.lookupObject<const volVectorField>("U");
    const volScalarField& nu = mesh_.lookupObject<const volScalarField>("nu");

    const volScalarField& alphaW =
     mesh_.lookupObject<const volScalarField>("alpha.water");

    const volScalarField& p = mesh_.lookupObject<const volScalarField>("p");

    interpolationCellPoint<scalar> rhoInterp(rho);
    interpolationCellPoint<vector> UInterp(U);
    interpolationCellPoint<scalar> nuInterp(nu);

    interpolationCell<scalar> alphaWInterp(alphaW);

    interpolationCellPoint<scalar> pInterp(p);

    smom_ = vector::zero;
    correctalphaW_=0;
    correctU_=vector::zero;

    solidParticle::trackingData
     td(*this, rhoInterp, UInterp, nuInterp, alphaWInterp, pInterp, g.value());
    Cloud<solidParticle>::move(td, mesh_.time().deltaTValue());

// Inject

    this->inject(td, posP, dP, UP);
}
My solver is compiling successfully, but when I run it, this is what I get:

Code:
Evolving cloud

Hi,

could you quickly run checkMesh and provide the output?

I am not sure what's happening but I tried adding multiple Info statements in the code trying to find out where exactly the error is occurring.

Code:

interFoam:

Code:
Info<< "Evolving cloud" << endl;
//        Info<<
        Info<<"g: " << g << " posP: " << posP << " dP: " << dP << " UP: " << UP << endl;
        particles.move(g,posP,dP,UP);
        Info<< "Cloud size = " << particles.size() << endl;

        Info<< "TEST\nTEST\nTEST\nTEST\nTEST\nTEST" << endl;

        particles.checkCo(); // 4-way coupling
        alpha1 += particles.AddToAlpha(); // LPT to VOF
        U += particles.AddToU();  // LPT to VOF

        runTime.write();

        Info<< "ExecutionTime = " << runTime.elapsedCpuTime() << " s"
            << "  ClockTime = " << runTime.elapsedClockTime() << " s"
            << nl << endl;
Code:

maybe your code expects a tetMesh, but you have hexahedral cells...

I guess I will have to remesh my problem using tetWedge in blockMesh instead of hex?

Is there any other way I can change findFaceCellPt instead of remeshing the complete problem?

You are correct. I checked the documentation and it appears that it takes a tet mesh... I am seriously surprised there is nothing for hexMesh...
