1 Short description
A steady-state incompressible turbulent flow solver with scalar transport and mass transfer coefficient and Sherwood number calculation.
Do the following steps:
- Download the solver package
- tar xzf SimpleScalarFoam.tar.gz
- cd simpleScalarFoam
The solver is based on simpleFoam, with the transport of a scalar T having a mass diffusion coefficient DT:
The mass transfer coefficient is determined at each wall by assuming that the value of T at the wall is zero:
where Tb is the bulk value of T and y is the direction normal to the wall.
The Sherwood number is then determined by:
where d is the characteristic dimension.
In order to use the solver, you should add DT, Tb and d to the transportProperties dictionary.
