 June 18, 2018, 05:24 Solving Convection-Diffusion-Reaction Equations #1 New Member   Alireza Jafarinia Join Date: Jun 2018 Location: Austria Posts: 6 Rep Power: 5 Dear friends, I am going to solve convection-diffusion-reaction equations in multiphase flow using OpenFOAM 5. As far as I know it is possible to use reactingMultiphaseEulerFoam solver, but the point is that there is no solved tutorial similar to my case. I would like to know your recommendations about how to start. Which tutorial do you suggest to modify? There is another solver reactingTwophaseEulerFoam which solves convection-diffusion-reaction in two phase. Currently I think it is possible to start with this two phase flow problem or a tutorial in multiphase flow without solving reaction like multiphaseEulerFoam. I am really confused how to start and I appreciate any kind of help. My equation are related to biochemical reactions in multiphase flow with several species like thrombus formation in blood flow.

Furthermore: What are the different phases you working with? Remember: Blood is a non-newtonian fluid. What is the approx. ratio of the two phases? Best Triggin

It means that at first we have only fluid which is blood; then after biochemical reactions a solid phase might form near the wall which is the thrombus.
