 May 28, 2002, 12:36 How to modelize a free surface? #1 Legendre Guest   Posts: n/a I would like to modelize a free surface. In a tank, two cylinders rotate contrarotatively. We put a very viscous oil in the tank and for a threshold rotation speed , the free surface is deformed and there is a singularity called "cusp". I want some help to modelize this 2D problem. Thank you Marc Legendre

Choose oil to be the first phase and air to be the second. Is this really a 2D problem? Is it an axisymmetric problem (axisymmetric swirl)? good luck, Laika, still orbiting

In your solution controls, choose 'body force weighted' in combination with the PISO-scheme for pressure-velocity coupling. Set all the underrelaxations equal to one. good luck, Laika, still orbiting
