If you go into OpenFOAM-1.7.0/applications/solvers/combustion/reactingFoam you can read the header files for these equations and see the specific terms that are included in the solved equations. I know that the code uses a schmidt's number of unity approximation....I moved away from reactingFoam and wrote my own that has detailed diffusion terms. hope this helps! -Ryan

 February 12, 2014, 11:29 Solver for OpenFOAM with Catalysis in Monoliths #3 New Member   Matthias Hettel Join Date: Apr 2011 Location: Karlsruhe, Germany Posts: 29 Rep Power: 8 Hello Everybody, you can find also an OpenFOAM solver which makes use of the software toolbox DETCHEM. The properties, gasphase reactions and surface reactions are taken from a shared library. You can calculate any geoemtry with a catalytic surface or you can calculate monoliths, weher flow and detailed chemistry inside the single channels are calculated outside of OpenFOAM. For academic use this code is free, for industrial use you have to buy a part of the DETCHEM software. You find information at www.detchem.com. Click on Software on the left side and have a look to in the product list. Greetings matthi
