Estimate Memory needed for LES/VOF simulation
Hi there!

Hope all is well, I am trying to simulate the breakup of bubble breakup inside a static mixer. The geometry is a U-shape static mixer with 5 mixinig element in serial with a total 2 million hexa cells.The aim is to use LES and VOF together.

I would like to know, is there any way to have a pre estimation on how much RAM memory do I need for the simulation?
My pc is acluster computer with 4 parallel CPU's .
Intel Xeon E5430
4*2660 MHz
Memory: 4000 MB
667 MHz

Many Thanks !
