## 1 Short description

A steady-state incompressible turbulent flow solver with scalar transport and mass transfer coefficient and Sherwood number calculation.

## 2 Compilation

Do the following steps:

- Download the solver package
- tar xzf SimpleScalarFoam.tar.gz
- cd simpleScalarFoam
- wmake

## 3 Physics

The solver is based on simpleFoam, with the transport of a scalar *T* having a mass diffusion coefficient :

The mass transfer coefficient is determined at each wall by assuming that the value of *T* at the wall is zero:

where 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 , and *d* to the transportProperties dictionary.
