Any feedback or suggestions are welcome.

Also, please give me a direction or any guidance to parallelize this solver.

The solver works well when running on a single core. But, blows up while running in parallel.

Thank You.

Hi, Pavithra.. thank you for your solver. May i know what is that lf at the zero folder? my intuation says that it is alpha, the liquid fraction?

Hi, it seems like the solution of your code is weird. I have seen a big vortex which is not appropriate. This one would be somewhat correct

Tutorial/functional case for solidificationMeltingSource

you can test it from this paper

Backed up by the experiment conducted by Gau and Viskanta, am I right to say that the converged result on the finer mesh was wrong? But how could it be?
Hi, i would like to ask if how was your study in melting of gallium? can you share your results/paper with me, if you have? your results seems strange to me too, but i would like to try it though..

Hi Fabian,


It has been some time but did you make your melting/solidification solver with free surface interface public? I had also developed a melt pool model for arc welding application including metal transfer. However I used the error function to calculate the liquid fraction. When I compare my simulation results with the melt pool data from the experiment, it gives good results in terms of predicting the depth of the fusion penetration but has significant discrepancy when comparing the the free surface length of the melt pool. I am starting to think if it is because my liquid fraction is not converging properly.



Would it be possible to see your code specifically the part where liquid fraction and energy equation are iteratively solved.



I did infact implemented the iteratively solving of liquid fraction and energy equation, thanks to the solver uploaded in this discussion. However, it always return the following error when running in parallel mode. It has never happened before. Would you have idea what could be the reason?

Thanks !

Hi,
I am doing some work on droplet solidification. I tried to add TEqn into interFoam and the solver can be compiled, but temperature is very strange in the result of my test case.
Did anyone find or build an appropriate solver?

Integrating TEqn to interFoam solver is well documented. You can find many documentation of it on the web. May be search with wolfdynamics team. In fact, the report presented in the link below also gives you a detail steps for implementaion. I suggest you try with first order scheme to run your test cases first.

Thank you very much! I will modify my solver according the report, and then run the case with first order scheme.

Has anyone managed to apply a "pull velocity" for the solid in the meltingFoam solver? I am trying to simulate a direct chill (DC) casting process (https://www.substech.com/dokuwiki/do...ill_dc_casting) where the solidified metal is pulled out from the computational domain at a specified casting speed. Similar to what is implemented in Ansys Fluent (https://www.afs.enea.it/project/nept...th/node357.htm)

Any tips here?



Best regards

Can I also have a copy of the Thesis please?
All the best
