In-Cylinder Flows with OpenFOAM – p.1/31
in this article there is a Finite Area Method for bubble or drop calculation. but i can not find any basic theory and books or papers about FAM,could any one show me what is FAM?how to do it in FOAM?

Finite Area method is basically a 2-D Finite Volume Method on a curved surface in 3-D. There are some corvature correction terms and additional stuff to do with surface motion. The reference is a PhD Thesis from my former student dr. Zeljko Tukovic at the University of Zagreb. Unfortunately, the text was originally in Croatian, but it is being translated as we speak.

Hello,

I am also looking for a solver and an example for FAM. In which solver is the thin liquid film model implemented and where can I find it?

Regards Markus

Hi Markus

I have been away for some time, so I do not know if the development version of OF-1.5 has been released.

I have been playing a little with FAM and it was under OF-1.4.1-dev, on which you will be able to find information about elsewhere in this forum.

If you download and compile it you will find a simple example of a convection of a scalar-quantity on the surface of a bubble-like feature.

Best regards,

Niels
