hi friends,
this is very important for my thesis completion....please help me out!
i am implementing VOF method for standard pump-sump setup..i have realized single phase solution and i want to use this solution for intializing VOF setup.
is this possible in fluent? any suggestions

p.s. the domain for VOF setup is extended (addtional air doamian is constructed) so mesh sizes is different than the 1 phase setup

Hi Virendrasingh,

Yes it is possible to use the results of an earlier simulation (different mesh) as an initial value to the current simulation.

Follow below steps:
  • Open previous case and data file in FLUENT
  • File ----> Interpolate -----> Write Data
  • Select the variables you want to use in new simulation, from the fields
  • Save the interpolation file
  • Open new case and data(initialized for air domain) file in FLUENT
  • File -----> Read and Interpolate ---> Read
  • Open the saved interpolation file
This should Work. All the Best!!!

Best Regards,
