interFoam - forces
 
Dear OF-users,

This question regards computations done with the interFoam solver (multiphase simulations, for example computations with boats).

Has someone developed a tool able to separate forces due to air and water ?

- pressure drag due to water (immersed part of the boat)
- viscous drag due to water (immersed part of the boat)
- pressure drag due to air (exposed part of the boat)
- viscous drag due to air (exposed part of the boat)
(idem for side force and lift).

Best regards,
Stephane.
