DNS - interDymFoam compare
Hello foamers!

Actually I'm looking for a model on VoF basis to simulate an evaporation.
I read much about interDymFoam and it's dynamic mesh refinement. I could imagine that the effort to compute a new mesh every time step is pretty high and i.e. in cases of high vapor fraction we have a large volume fraction of refined regions to.

So if I already refined the main part of my model, should it be a big difference to use DNS instead ?

Is there anyone who have some experience of the calculation time of interDymFoam in compare to DNS ?

Thanks in advance,
