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.

Hi jafarinia

Even if you would like to start right from the top, my general purpose for working with new (unknown) solvers is:
  • Set up a simple geometry (maybe only with blockMesh)
  • Build a simple two-phase flow
  • Verify your solution
  • Add a reaction to it
  • Verify your solution
I made the experience that it's worth to invest this additional time to preliminary studies.

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?

Thank you. Well, the problem is the formation of thrombus in blood. 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.
