ahammack is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to improve how I initialize my Fluent open channel flow simulation. The Fluent manual recommends a process of initialization, and I'm having trouble with Step 2:

Patch the domain using a volume fraction value of the secondary phase to 1, up to the Free Surface Level specified at the inlet.

I've never used a patch. My inlet free-surface level of the secondary phase at my inlet is 5.4. Could someone please show me the steps for completing the volume fraction patching for my initialization?

Thanks,
Allen
