Hi everybody,

just a confirm to see if I understood things correctly. In the twoPhaseEulerianFoam, in the interfacialProperties file, with the keyword dragPhase I specify the dispersed phase right? For instance if I have air (Phase a) and water (Phase b), "dragPhase a" means that air bubble are dispersed in continuum water. Consequently, when in the transportProperties file when I specify the diameters

d d [0 1 0 0 0 0 0] 0.0001;

d d [0 1 0 0 0 0 0] 0.01;

the diameter of phaseb does not play any role since this is the continuum phase. Am I right?

Thanks for your attention
