Hi all,

I run a 3-D analysis for flow over flat surface. Its free surface (two phase - water + air) flow. Here I want to capture 2 things as follows:

1. I want to capture ONLY Water spreading on flat surface. since OpenFOAM only permit SINGLE volume mesh, there is no option for multi-volume / multiphase flow.
So this single volume contain water & air, both. Now at the end of simulation I want to capture only WATER spreading volume on flat surface.
please help me to get this into Paraview.

2. i wanted to get animation by taking Pics in any format (*.jpg, *.tif, *.png)
but I am getting one error here....

Extension: 144 (Uknown extension)
Minor opcode: 5 (Unknown request)
Resource id: 0x5d
X Error: GLXBadContext 154
Extension: 144 (Uknown extension)
Minor opcode: 5 (Unknown request)
Resource id: 0x5d
/data/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/bin/paraFoam: line 109: 29512 Segmentation fault paraview --data="$caseFile"


please help me to sort-out this problem,

thanks alot

You can use option Contour to plot free surface in Paraview. This could help you to imagine how your spreaded water looks like.

Is that what you need?
