Default Young-Laplace equation
Posts: n/a
Hi all

I'm trying to incorporate the surface tension effect to an existing VOF code. Can anybody guide me to a code that solves the Young-Laplace equation or a source on how to solve it. I've tried several approaches but all have failed as the equation is very non-linear.

Have you tried surface evolver ?

Also, Ripple I think its a NASA code, not sure where to get it.

Evolver is really nice but very hard (I think) to include in a fortran code as I'm doing.

Ripple code is an exportation protected code...

thanks anyway.
