Hybrid rocket - which solver for combustion
Hi All!

I want to simulate a combustion in hybrid rocket engine. There will be a injection of liquid kerosene (the fuel injector must be directly modelled, as for example in sprayFoam->sprayCloudProperties) and gaseous oxygen.

Which solver should I use and why?

I'm thinking about sprayFoam or reactingParcelFoam, but i don't really understand what is the difference between them and if I can model a injector in the latter.

Maybe some other solver would be better?

Best regards

It turns out that sprayFoam uses particle tracking which does not support 2D geometries (empty and wedge boundaries).
Can anybody recommend any other solver which supports 2D and axisymmetric geometries, liquid and gaseous mixtures, injector modelling and combustion?
