Hi all,

I am modeling a two phase (air and water) flow in a container with compressed air at the bottom and a column of water on top. The top boundary is open to atmosphere and the rest are walls. I set the initial condition for the pressure field using setFields as follows (two times atmospheric pressure):
        box (0 0 -1) (0.1 0.5 1);
    		volScalarFieldValue p_rgh 303975
I am using multiphaseEulerFoam solver and set the top boundary conditions for U and p_rgh as follows:

        type            totalPressure;
        p0              $internalField;
        U               U.air;
        phi             phi.air;
        value           $internalField;

        type            pressureInletOutletVelocity;
        value           uniform (0 0 0);
The problem is that no matter what value I set for the initial pressure the results are the same. A bubble will form and rises. The water column should move upward due to effect of compressed air at the bottom. Any suggestions is appreciated.
