Hi guys,

i have to simulate the water flow through an open bowl, were carbon fiber is beeing washed.
Anyway, I successfully set a fluid domain and let the water flow with different temperatures and velocities. It looks like this: (Symmetry view)



An interaction with the atmosphere is not given. Fluent declaired the top surface of the fluiddomain as a wall.

How do I fix this, so the water hight is not blocked by the "wall"?

should I for example put a second fluid domain for air and handle the problem as multiphase?

thank you
