Release


We prepared a patch release to group together bug fixes, particularly regarding the case setup and moment initialization of polydisperseBubbleFoam. No changes impacting user input were made. For a detailed list of changes with respect to OpenQBMM 4.0.0, please refer to the list of commits following no b78a799e8f66481f9c84d63733f513ce57602470 In case you experience issues, please open […]

OpenQBMM 5.0.1 for OpenFOAM 7 is now available   Recently updated !


We are pleased to release OpenQBMM 5.0.0 for OpenFOAM 7. Notable changes in this release: A new size-velocity quadrature algorithm has been implemented relying on the hyperbolic conditional quadrature method of moments (HyCQMOM). This approach allows the description of particulate flows over a wide range of volume fractions, incorporating the effect of size distribution. The […]

OpenQBMM 5.0.0 for OpenFOAM 7 is now available


We are pleased to release OpenQBMM 4.0.0 for OpenFOAM 6.x. This release includes several new developments and improvements to existing algorithms to improve their robustness. Notably: A new algorithm was implemented in the poly-disperse gas-liquid solver to remove inconsistencies between the transported moments and the two-fluid model used to solve for the mean flow. The […]

OpenQBMM 4.0.0 for OpenFOAM 6.x is now available



We are pleaded to announce the release of OpenQBMM 3.0.0. Major changes are summarized below: Multiphase solver polydisperseBubbleFoam for gas-liquid systems based on the solution of a generalized population balance equation for a joint size-velocity NDF (Contributed by Jeffrey Heylmun). The computational model allows each bubble size to have its own velocity (polycelerity), and relies […]

OpenQBMM 3.0.0 released


The OpenQBMM live distribution provides rapid access to OpenQBMM, without requiring to build the per-requisites of the code, and, eventually, without installing a Linux distribution. It is ideal for learning about OpenQBMM, and for training purposes. Several formats are available, as illustrated in the dedicated page. The images are created with SUSE Studio, and are […]

OpenQBMM live distribution


OpenQBMM 2.0.0 is now available! A list of the major changes follows. A general framework for the solution of evolution equations involving a distribution function was implemented (univariatePDFTransportModel). Turbulent mixing models: a new solver, mixingTransportFoam, is provided to solve turbulent mixing models using velocity fields obtained from RANS flows solvers. The following mixing models are […]

OpenQBMM 2.0.0



I am pleased to announce the first stable release of OpenQBMM, which includes the following features: Implementation of the Extended Quadrature Method of Moments for lognormal and gamma kernel density functions. Implementation of univariate population balance solver with kernels for aggregation, breakup and growth, diffusion. pbeFoam – Population balance solver for zero-dimensional problems, mostly used […]
