Hello,

I tried running the the case "sloshingTank3D6DoF" in the tutorial under interDyMFoam. I understand that this is a closed domain problem and when I run the case, I see that the volume fraction in the domain is changing every time step!! I have pasted the output for this case for few time steps. Can someone please explain what is happening here??
