Aelsawis is on a distinguished road
I' am trying to model the behavior of a non newtonian fluid inside an eccentric annulus. I need to get a profile of the annular velocity of the fluid for the whole cross section. I just discovered the OpenFoam and i was wondering if the "nonNewtonianIcoFoam" solver would manage a problem like this? Since i am new in this area any further help or suggestions is appreciated. What should i read to get started? Is there another solver that is more specialized in Annular flow? Will i need a mesh generation program(Boundary conforming grid generator) or Will the Openfoam handle the whole problem?

Really appreciate any help
