I was wondering if it is possible in OpenFOAM to change the domain size dynamically. For instance, consider you have evaporation, but it is only desired to simulate the liquid region. Is it possible to simulate only the liquid region, and dynamically shrink the domain size as the liquid (domain) decreases?
