The HZDR Multiphase Addon is a software publication released by Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf according to the FAIR principles (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reuseability). It contains experimental research work 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).

Highlights of the provided addon are:

  • HZDR Baseline Model: HZDRMultiphaseEulerFoam solver with full support of the HZDR baseline model set for polydisperse bubbly flows, including configuration files and tutorials for simplified setup of Baseline cases (Hänsch et al., 2021).
  • Population Balance Modelling: A GPU-accelerated population balance method according to Petelin et al. (2021).
  • OpenFOAM-Hybrid cipsaMultiphaseEulerFoam solver featuring a hybrid modelling approach (dispersed and resolved interfaces, Meller et al., 2021) with an interface to the multiphaseEulerFoam framework to utilise all available interfacial models, and configuration files and tutorials for easy setup of hybrid cases.
