Hi Guys,
i really need your Help
Is it possible in openFOAM to perform a simulation and then use its results as initial conditions for a second one?

For example:

the first simulation(solved with interFoam) is tank, that has two holes filled up with water. The water is defined as a box inside the Tank in setfieldsDict. This Water should flow from the two holes and met up with the first geometry.

can i use the deformed water, that leaves that first geomtry in a second Simulation, in which that water meets another Geometry?

i know i can do the both simulations at one step, it would be easier, but i must to split the two geomtries and do this way
Thanks in advance

Hi Louay,

I've got the same problem, did you find a solution for it?
