The Multiphase Code Repository by HZDR for OpenFOAM Foundation Software is a software publication released by Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf according to the FAIR principles (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reuseability). It contains experimental research work for the open-source software released by The OpenFOAM Foundation. The developments are dedicated to the numerical simulation of multiphase flows, in particular to the multi-field two-fluid model (Euler-Euler method).

Highlights of the Multiphase Code Repository by HZDR

  • HZDR Baseline Model: addonMultiphaseEuler solver with full support of the HZDR baseline model set for polydisperse bubbly flows, including configuration files and tutorials for simplified setup of Baseline cases (Hänsch et al., 2021).
  • Population Balance Modelling: A GPU-accelerated population balance method according to Petelin et al. (2021).
  • Morphology-adaptive Multifield Two-fluid Model (MultiMorph): cipsaMultiphaseEuler solver featuring a morphology-adaptive modelling approach (dispersed and resolved interfaces, Meller et al., 2021) with an interface to the multiphaseEuler framework to utilise all available interfacial models, and configuration files and tutorials for easy setup of cases with the MultiMorph Model.
