 November 14, 2006, 18:16 Finite Area method is basicall #2 Senior Member   Hrvoje Jasak Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: London, England Posts: 1,758 Rep Power: 21 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.

 November 25, 2008, 04:51 Hello, I am also looking fo #4 Senior Member   Markus Rehm Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Erlangen (Germany) Posts: 176 Rep Power: 8 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

 November 26, 2008, 16:20 Hi Markus I have been away #5 Senior Member   Niels Gjoel Jacobsen Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Deltares, Delft, The Netherlands Posts: 1,609 Rep Power: 25 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 __________________ Please note that I do not use the Friend-feature, so do not be offended, if I do not accept a request.

Could you help me with a problem I ran into when I am trying to calculate a divergence of a field defined on Finite area mesh. The thread is here : Problem of calculating divergence due to wrong boundary vaule of finite area mesh Thanks ! Best regards !
