Hi All,

Can someone please suggest how to define an initial liquid level for a vof model? In Fluent, there is a function 'patch' to do this. I am not sure if CFX also has a similar tool.

Thanks,

Gab

You can use a step function with a coordinate. For everything above x=0 to be gas use:

VfGasIni=0.999*step[x/1[m]]

VfLiquidIni=1-VfGas

Remember to provide a decent pressure distribution as well. This is very well documented in the help. Please read it good.

Another good advice is to use a minimum fraction of 1e-5. Do not use 0 as this will lead to problems.....
