Dear foamers,
i am doing analysis under water vechile,i just design in catia,please give idea how i start with this one it has rectangular box six padles(left side 3 and right side 3) to flap in under water.please give me idea with basic how i start with preprocessing(mesh) and solver.please find my attached design.


Regards,

Hi Eric ,

Iam sending this email in regard to your post on 'CFD ONLINE' relating to benchmark cases of several hulls using LES and VOF. I am a Mtech student and my project is related to the hydrodynamics of vessel. I would like to know more about ship hydrodynamics in OPEN Foam and in particular the wigley hulls using VOF method. Please help me out by sending a copy of this particular case.

hi partners

I'm trying to make a CFD analysis of the KCS hull using interFoam, butn I can't find the convergence and when I see the results on para Foam I can see some interference or something, can you help me?

Hi all,

I have run a drag force analysis of accustom hull using LTSInterFoam.
But after 12000 runs the free surface is seen above the ship hull. What could be the possible reason. Could it be because the solution is not yet stable. Should I run this for more number of iterations?

One more thing, I need to find the drag force on the hull. The function to write the force that I have asks for only one density value. How can that function give me the drag when it is a multiphase problem. There should be two values of density changing with the value of alpha1. Can anybody help me with this?

Below I am attaching few results:

1) The meshed hull with value of alpha1 shown. Blue region is air; red region is water.
2) Free surface after 100 iterations
3) free surface after 12000 iterations.

Has anyone tried the propeller tutorial in openFoam??
If yes let me know how to go about it.
My allrun file is not working. So iam trying to run it manually.
Can anyone help me out with the steps???

Thanks in advance.
