Software Open Access
The HZDR multiphase addon contains additional code for the open-source CFD software OpenFOAM, 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). Within the OpenFOAM library the multiphaseEulerFoam framework is used for this type of simulation. The addon contains a modified multiphaseEulerFoam named HZDRmultiphaseEulerFoam with the full support of the HZDR baseline model set for polydisperse bubbly flows according to Liao et al. (Chem Eng Sci, 2019, Vol. 202, 55-69). In addition a solver dedicated to a hybrid modelling approach (dispersed and resolved interfaces, Meller et al., Int J Numer Meth Fluids. 2020, 1-26) named cipsaMultiphaseEulerFoam is provided with the addon. This solver has an interface to the multiphaseEulerFoam framework and utilizes all available interfacial models of it.
