Default simulate the movement of boats
Francesco B.
Posts: n/a
Hi all, I would like to simulate the movement of boats-like objects using OpenFoam, is it possible? Of course I think the answer is positive, but i can't find anything on the net. The problem is quite complex because it could be defined as liquid-solid-gas case with free surface.

Can someone give me a hint of how to solve it using OpenFOAM?

Anyone knows if there is a different software (Fluent maybe?) which could solve this problem?

Thank you in advance
