Interfoam... free surface simulation urgent
 
Hi all..

I am trying to simulate a free motion of water in a rectangular tank. I have taken water(second phase) in some initial distorted form and now I want to simulate its free motion in tank. I am using interfoam for this.

After running interFoam I am getting this error...

mesh flux field does not exists, is the mesh actually moving?

From function fvMesh::phi()

I am searched a lot but could not find solution of this error. I am using 1.6 version.

:)
Thanks in advance..

Hi,

If you send me your case, I can take a look at it.

hi guys, i have a problem with the surface tension implementation!
like the tutorial:free surface flow over a bump.
i have a film(polymersolution) over a platt with 2 diferent temperatures,length scale 50 mm,laminar other settings and the boundarys condition are the same like in the tutorials.
i have to get the surfacetension-curve as funktion of the temperature!
what i should to do? thank a lot

Hi, lostin4ever,

Since you are using interFoam, so, I assume that you are not running moving mesh.

In your 0/U, change wall type to fixedValue and in constant/dynamicMeshDict change it to staticMeFvMesh

you should be able to run your case after the two changes.

Hi every body,
I have a problem when I want to compile a model.
the error is:
