twoPhaseEulerFoam - parameters
Hi all,
I'm attempting to simulate a fluid-solid system. water and sand basically. I've been using the Fluent Manual to understand the set-up parameters and various theory for a twoPhaseEulerFoam case. However, there's still a few things that remain unclear. Can someone shed some light on these parameters in the kineticTheoryProperties file:

Fr, eta, p - what are they?

Also, all parameters in the ppProperties file are unclear to me. Can someone explain the parameters?

That would help me no end! Thanks.

I just found that Fr, eta and p are factors for the Johnson Jackson model... Thanks Fluent Manual!
g0 in the ppProperties is connected with the radial function so describes particle-particle collision i think.
