It seems spring break gave me some time to run a simple case to test some application of Fokker-Planck mixing model using moment methods. As I always say, this work is never been possible without the help of my advisors, Prof. Alberto Passalacqua and Prof. Rodney O. Fox.
To perform this test case I ran the simulations on the -dev version of OpenFOAM® using the buoyantSimpleFoam solver using RAS approach with LRR model. Velocity profile is shown as below.
Next step was to perform the Fokker-Planck molecular mixing model using moment methods. For this part, I used the OpenQBMM®, package to obtain the mixture fraction and mixture fraction variance for the flow.
