DieselFoam (Two-way Coupling )
Hello, Please can somebody tell me if dieseFoam has two way coupling or not. If not what is the possible way to have a two way coupling.

What do you mean with "two way coupling", please?

By Two way coupling I mean,"The particle influence on the continuous phase is taken into account. Both through the momentum transfer between the phases and the volume fraction of the particles"

Two way coupling seems to be considered in dieselFoam by

+ dieselSpray.momentumSource()

in UEqn.H in dieselEngineFoam-directory (for OF-1.6.x)

Phase fraction of particles/droplets is not considered.
