bubbleFoam and tet mesh
Hi all,

Has anyone here successfully ran bubbleFoam on a tet mesh produced by Gmsh? I have been having a lot of trouble with stability in my bubbleFoam runs..

I went back to the tutorial case and tried to generate the tutorial geometry in Gmsh, following the tutorial here:

I then ran bubbleFoam and the solver stopped running after a few timesteps..

Can anybody share any experiences they have had with getting bubbleFoam to work? Or maybe suggest something I may be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
