Hi all,

I am a new user to OpenFoam, and currently using it for my Final Year Project.

I just want to know if there is any way where I can use the functions of LTSInterFoam, but run using PotentialFoam solver.

quite unclear for me your needs

What do you mean by LTSInterFoam functions?

And what/why do you want to extract something to LTSInterFoam to potentialFoam?

There is little link between them.
LTSInterFoam solve the transient Navier-Stokes equation + a transient equation for the volumic fraction. LTs refers to "local time step" / say a specific technique for dealing with temporal evolution.
PotentialFoam solve a elliptic equation for building a potential flow.
