Solvers for simulation of different species without combustion
can anyone suggest model for simulation of diffrent species without combustion ?

Greetings Payal,

Have you check this list :confused::

If the previous link doesn't help, please provide more information about the type of simulation you want to do.

Best regards,

helo bruno ,
actually i want to simulate the flow in my case having 2 inlets . one for air and other for fuel . so i need a solver which will handle different species without combustion .

so can you plz suggest solver for my case .

regards ,

Hi Payal,

I used Google to search for:

openfoam multispecies flow
I found this thread:

And also found that you can use the reactingFoam and rhoReactingFoam solvers, as long as you turn off the chemistry and/or combustion part.

Best regards,

thanks bruno for guiding me . i wl start working with these solver .

greetings Bruno ,

Is there any documentation on this reactingFoam solver ? bcz without it , its difficult for me to understand and proceed further .
so can you suggest something for the above said .

thanks ,
Regards ,

Hi Payal,

:confused: I did a quick search with Google and these are the first 3 hits:

thanks Bruno . its really useful .

Dear payal
I just want to add that if your fluids are incompressible (Mach number below 0.3) you can use incompressible solvers that exist in multiphase solvers like twoliquidmixingfoam.

greetings Mohsen,

yes my flow is incompressible but after the simulation with different species without combustion. i want to do it with combustion . i started with reactingFoam fist with combustion off and then on but you can guide me if there are other solvers which i can use for my case .

thanks ,
Regards ,

If you want to simulate it with combustion later; then you must use the combustion solvers

Good Luck
