Which solver for the following case?
Hello everybody

I am looking for a solver to solve a problem involving the following factors simultaneously.

- Multiple Inlets with an imposed U (or mass flow or volumetric flow)/ Temperature/ Relative Humidity.
- Multiple Outlets with and imposed U, for extracting Air.
- Opening to the "atmosphere". (pressure BC such as window)
- Buoyancy driven flow.
- Heat source.
- Heat transfer at a given rate, depending on a fixed Temperature, trough the boundaries. (U values).
- Steady State solution.

It looks like each solver is focused in a particular problem. I wonder if there is a particular one dealing with all the above at the same time.:confused:

Thanks in advance to the openFoam community.

I am using a similar kind of problem. But as of now I am not solving for Humidity. If you are still solving this problem you can try for BouyentSimpleFoam.

Did you also use Radiation in you model ??
