You can simulate interacting fluid streams of imiscible substances (e.g. water, air, oil) using the interFoam or multiphaseInterFoam solvers. Miscible substances (that you would need, say, the multiphaseEulerFoam solver for) aren't supported as it stands.Sidemountyucatan wrote: ↑Mon May 27, 2019 1:12 pmDear all,
I have started to check out CFDOf WB (latest available version) and I have got a question to it. Is it possible to define two or more fluid properties in case of interfering fluid streams ? e.g. two incompressible liquids with different fluid properties get into contact and mix.
Thanks for your feedback.

implemented in CFDOf yet, right ? I would have to deal with OPENFOAM directly.
In case of imiscible substances how can I setup the case in Freecad / CfdOf ? I mean, I couldn't
figure out where to choose the solver e.g. interFoam respectively how to define 2 different
Do you some informations for me regarding those issues (example, tutorial, link to some other sources, etc.).
Thx a lot !

No, you only create one mesh. There is one geometry for the simulation. However, you have the option to initialise the volume fraction field to a certain value in a certain area if you wish to start with a particular initial distribution of the fluids. You do this with (one or more) initialisation zone(s).First you create a model of your entire fluid as one geometry (it could be a solid compound, if I understood that correctly) and then a second geometry (for example, a box) which will later be defined in the analysis as a "Initialization Zone". Now you have to start a transient simulation and select multiphase flow. then add two imiscible fluids (such as water and air) then create an initialization zone and define your box as one of the two fluids under volume fractions and set the value to 1 for 100%
I have a question especially to the Statement "create a model of your entire fluid as one geometry (it could be a solid compound, if I understood that correctly) and then a second geometry …". Does it mean that the entire geometry has to be done twice - one time for considering media 1 and one time just for media 2 - and superimpose them ? And meshed twice ?
