Webinar 14: Modelling of Vane Compressors and Expanders using SCORG and OpenFOAM

Posted on January 28, 2021

In this webinar, Dr Sham Rane presents the application of a newly integrated OpenFOAM solver from ESI Group, OpenCFD Limited to model Vane machines.


  • SCORG – OpenFOAM Integration
  • Vane Expander Case Study
  • Twin Screw and Roots Blower application


The webinar covers key aspects of grid generation for Vane machines using SCORG and modelling with OpenFOAM solver for which a customised integration has been developed for SCORG deforming meshes.


The solver setup with non-conformal interfaces, end leakages and comparison with ANSYS CFX solution is also presented as pressure, the temperature distribution in the chambers, mass flow and torque variation during cycles.
