OpenFOAM (interFoam)


Open source Field Operation And Manipulation

OpenFOAM® is an open source library of applications and solvers for simulating computational continuum mechanics (CCM) (Weller et al., 1998). Solvers for the simulation of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) form a significant branch in the OpenFOAM® library. It includes the solver interFoam, a Navier-Stokes (NS) equations solver following an Eulerian mesh-based method for two incompressible, isothermal immiscible fluids. The interface between water and air (the two fluids of interest here) and its advection is obtained by the Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) phase-fraction based interface capturing approach described by Berberović et al. (2009).
