 December 14, 2002, 22:50 Steady state in VOF #1 CFD Newbie Guest   Posts: n/a I have been running VOF simulations in fluent 6. The problem is prety simple, a drop of liquid falling over a sphere at very small velocities. Air is flowing around at velocities 50% higher. Some simulations have reached 12 real seconds but the streamline function lines keep on changing. May I expect to reach to steady state? Thnx for any idea. CFD Newbie

The liquid drop is falling from the top on a sphere (EXACTLY from the top?)? Are you modeling the liquid film on a sphere by VOF? From which direction the air is flowing? Nancy

 December 16, 2002, 01:27 Re: Steady state in VOF #3 CFD Newbie Guest   Posts: n/a I have started with a seemingly realistic shape ( but still unsteady) of the fluid, expecting the shape of the film as part of the solution. The liquid drop falls exactly from the top. Yes, I'm modeling the liquid film on the sphere by VOF and the air is flowing concurrently downward. Thanks for your answer. Yours truly CFD Newbie

 December 18, 2002, 17:11 Re: Steady state in VOF #5 CFD Newbie Guest   Posts: n/a The Weber number I'm using are of the order of 10-3 to 10-4, calculated by We=viscosity*velocity/surface tension I don't know how to estimate the film thickness, can you please provide me some information? thnx CFD Newbie
