Default simulate droplet oscillation

Dear all:

I am trying to model the forced oscillation of a droplet on a solid surface, which vibrate asymmetriclly in plane and may cause the movement of the droplet. Therefore, it is a flow with a free surface and a moving boundary.

Can anybody give me a suggestion what kind of numerical method can solve this problem? Can any software package like FLUENT, CFX solve this problem? Any suggestion will be very appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Do you want to do surface tracking or surface capturing?

Have a look at FOAM and some of my recent presentations on http://www.h.jasak.dial.pipex.com onder Slides

You can download FOAM from http://www.openfoam.org. It will do surface capturing out-of-box, but the surface tracking stuff is still not released in the public version. This is work of my colleague Dr. Zeljko Tukovic at the University of Zagreb: maybe you should consider a collaboration.

Enjoy,

Hrv

I don't know if we can do such a problem with FLUENT, maybe we can, but I know you can do this problem with CFD-ACE+

Is CFD-ACE+ a commercial package, how much? Where to buy?

Thanks a lot
