Default VOF validation problem
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I was looking for the dam break problem in order to validate a FEM/VOF code and it seems that everybody around the world runs this problem as described in the following article:

Koshizuka S, Tamako H, Oka Y, "A particle method for incompressible viscous flow with fluid fragmentation", Journal of Computational and Fluid Dynamics, 1995 (4):29-46

unfortunately, in my university, we don't have access to this especific journal database and I'm writting to ask is anybody could send me this paper (

thanks a lot for any help

I think level set is better than VOF, personal opinion. Check my results:

nice results Kai Yu... which reference have you used to validate your 3D dam break problem?

Regarding the method, I can't discern about which method is the best. In fact, I've just started to read about interface capturing methods and I've found out that the free surface methods based in VOF/pseudo-concentration concepts are very straightforward to implement in a coupled flow x transport FEM solver, and this is my case...
