Hi guys,
I am a new user to OpenFoam. I want to couple an Euler solver to the G-equation (in combustion) using a level set approach. After going through the tutorials, it appears that many people seem to prefer the VOF method. In my case, I have a flame which seperates gases with two different densities. I need to track this flame surface very accurately. In combustion literature, it is pointed out that the Level set method is much better for tracking the flame front than the VOF method. I would be glad if any of you can share your experience/opiniion about the suitability of implementing this in openfoam...of if any of you have already taken a shot at this...
