I am having a difficult time in finding the source files of algorithms involved in evaluating the dynamic contact angles. And when the angles are specified, how does it relate with the alpha-field?

The sources for the alphaContactAngles can be found in
Code:
.../OpenFOAM-x.y.z/src/transportProperties/twoPhaseProperties/alphaContactAngle/
where x.y.z is your version number, and ... implies your installation path, probably /home or /home/username, I guess? In those cases, ~/OpenFOAM-2.y.z/rest/of/path should probably work.

You can use find . -iname *contactAngle* within the OpenFOAM source tree (.../src) to find these files, but probably it would work from any parent directory (I imagine there are not many other files on your system called *contactAngle*)

Hey,
I am confused with few terms like, Uwall(Up.patchInternalField() - Up). What does it physically mean?

How is the Uwall (or Up) evaluated (or taken input from user) ?

Thanks in advance!
