Go back to Day 9.

Free surface flows in OpenFOAM

In this tutorial, you will find a compact introduction to the theory behind free surface flows in OpenFOAM, a step-by-step guide to run the 2D spillway tutorial and an intro for hydrodynamic instabilities (simulation of Rayleigh - Taylor instability). For each case, you will

  • create your mesh with
    • blockMesh
    • snappyHexMesh
    • extrudeMesh
  • set the physical properties
  • set the boundary conditions
  • initialize the fields
  • set the numerical schemes
  • run computations

The case files can be found here.
