Hy, I'm a graduate in Mechanical Engineering, I'm involving in a research about using Fluent in order to analyze the flow around a ship hull. I would like to analyse the free surface behaviour with VOF. Are you involved in the same theme? Can you help me in boundary conditions definition and solution controls?

Thanks in advance. Giovanni

Re: Vof
1) What type of VOF scheme did u use ? 2) What kind of mesh you have ?

The mesh should be very fine near the surface.

Re: Vof
According to the user's guide, for flow around a ship's hull: steady-state with the implicit interpolation scheme.

I have an hexa mesh.

My problems are boundary conditions and solution controls. In fact the free surface goes down at pressure outlet below the control volume.

Can you help me?
