I lose some fluid during simulation using InterDyMFoam
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,


I'm trying to simulate fluid sloshing inside a tank with InterDyMFoam, subjected to a sinusoidal lateral displacement. I start at 0,05 sec and stop at 58 sec. After that the fluid oscillates freely.


When i use the patchIntegrate p walls to obtain the vertical, I obtain a curve that start from -323 N a 0 sec but at the end of my simulation I don't obtain the same value. It seems like if I lose some fluid during the simulation, probably by the solution convergence.


Can anybody tell me what is the reason to this effect,
