I'm fairly new to Foam, but am getting reading to start my school research work. I will be running a 2D rubber mixing simulation. It's two phase (rubber and air in the mixing chamber), non-isothermal, with a moving mesh (mixing rotors spin inside the chamber). The Reynolds number is very low; on the order of 10. What recommendations do you have for solver type, material model(s) to capture viscous shear heating, and the moving mesh aspect?

Thanks in advance,
M Ridzon
