Available mixing models


OpenQBMM implements turbulent mixing models in a generic framework, which allows the selection of physical sub-models at runtime. The following list summarizes the available sub-models:

  • Diffusion
    • Molecular diffusion
    • No diffusion
    • Turbulent diffusion
  • Mixing models
    • Interaction by exchange with the mean (IEM)
    • Fokker-Planck

Implementation details, equations and references for each of the sub-models listed above can be found in the code documentation.

Additional kernels can be implemented by the user at need, leveraging the runtime selection mechanism of OpenFOAM. Relevant feature requests and contributions may be discussed on the GitHub issue tracker.
