In this post we will provide a step-to-step guide to implement a passive scalar transport equation within the pimpleFoam solver in OpenFOAM, in order to extend its capabilities to problems like forced turbulent convection heat transfer and generic turbulent convection-diffusion transport.
We are excited about moving in to our shiny new office in Nexus Leeds, the new innovation centre located within the University of Leeds campus. The R&D facilities at Nexus Leeds will allow us to engineer solutions quicker, innovate more rapidly and engage with the community at a far more effective level!
Our simulation engineer Andrea co-authored the paper “Towards the accurate prediction of the turbulent flow and heat transfer in low-Prandtl fluids”, which has now been published in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer.
CentDS participated in the IoT Showcase and the IoT Challenger North organised by ODI Leeds, IoTUK and Digital Catapult. The event has provided several SMEs with an amazing opportunity to work and interact with public and private sector organisations to create IoT solutions for pressing challenges.
Our simulation engineer Andrea co-authored the paper “Assessment of different URANS models for the prediction of the unsteady thermal mixing in a T-junction”, which has now been published in Annals of Nuclear Energy. Andrea published this paper while working as a CFD consultant for the Nuclear Research and consultancy Group (NRG) based in the Netherlands.
