WEugene is on a distinguished road
I want to model and simulate resin flow through a fiber reinforced matrix.
In other words, flow in complex geometry: 10 tows by 10 tows and they are 10 layers. Moreover, the flow must be compressible and multiphase, because bubbles are entrapped in it. Bubbles can contain air or volatile components of resin.

Next assumptions can be considered:
  1. Flow is very slow and viscous: Ma<<1 and Re<<1
  2. Thermal-mechanical equilibrium, i.e. velocity, temperature and pressure of all components are the same in a point.
  3. gases are ideal, the resin is liquid, which depends linearly on pressure and temperature.

Thus, I need a software which:
  • use adaptive refinement mesh, bubbles are moved, and an interface must be resolved.
  • deal with very complex geometry. As it was mentioned before: 10 by 10 tows and 10 layers. There must be some concrete format to obtain from external files.
  • solver must be compressible because bubbles are entrapped in resin

And the question is next: can the code SU2 solve such complex problem. Are there any graphs: performance vs the number of proc?
