Hello foamers
I am working on simulating heavy fuel combustion with openfoam.
I do not know much about object-oriented programming, which makes it not easy to work with OpenFoam.
I use disealFoam and I want to define a solid carbon phase in it.
when parcels mass is smaller than minimum parcel mass droplets become solid (carbon), instead of adding neglected parcels to surrounding gas similar to the code below that is available in the file Parcel.C .

// remove parcel if it is 'small'
if (m() < sDB.minimumParcelMass())
keepParcel = false;

// ... and add the removed 'stuff' to the gas
forAll(nMass, i)
sDB.srhos()[i][celli] += nMass[i];

sDB.sms()[celli] += nMom;
sDB.shs()[celli] += m()*(nH + nPE);

Can anyone help me make these changes?
Many thanks
