hello. I want to use the Tait equation of state in compressibleInterFoam. in some documents, they said this is New compressibility models in OpenFOAMŪ but in help or tutorial, I can't see any guide to use it.
Thank You

The Tait equation is the adiabaticPerfectFluid EOS. I am using the code below within the thermophysicalProperties.water file in compressibleInterFoam in OF7 (In OF8 & 9 I get a bunch of errors that I am trying to figure out).

I did a curve fit to isentropic liquid water data to get the gamma and B values. These are relevant for my particular project. In the open literature you will find a lot of different values for gamma and B. You will need to figure out the values that fit the fluid properties for your particular situation. This will require some (non-linear) curve fitting. This is really important or you may get very strange numbers. The values below for gamma and B may be totally wrong for your situation.
