rheoTool
swMATH ID:  30706 
Software Authors:  F. Pimenta, M.A. Alves 
Description:  RheoTool is an opensource toolbox based on OpenFOAM® to simulate Generalized Newtonian Fluids (GNF) and viscoelastic fluids under pressuredriven and/or electricallydriven flows. In addition to continuum mechanics solvers, RheoTool also has a Brownian dynamics solver to simulate polymer molecules individually. The theory behind the singlephase flow solvers used in RheoTool can be found in Pimenta F. and Alves M.A., 2017, J. NonNewtonian Fluid Mech. for pressuredriven flows, and in Pimenta F. and Alves M.A., 2018, arXiv:1802.02843 for electricallydriven flows. The Brownian dynamics solver was presented in Pimenta F. et al., 2018, Biomicrofluidics. Since version 4.0, RheoTool includes interfaces to the sparse matrix solvers of three external libraries: Eigen, Hypre and PETSc. Both coupled and segregated solution methods have been implemented, as described in Pimenta F. and Alves M.A., 2019, arXiv:1904.02138. The library containing the viscoelastic fluid models has been developed based on the library used by viscoelasticFluidFoam (Favero et al., 2010, J. NonNewtonian Fluid Mech.), already present in foamextend 4.0.
