Hi everyone,

I'm simulating an air bubble in liquid water in a closed cavity with interFoam.
I only changed the damBreak tutorial slightly to get my current results.

Now my problem is that the air bubble sticks to the wall, but it should not ,because its such a small bubble, it should bounce back, become spherical and should not touch the wall due to the surface tension of the water.

I attached my current results.

Does anyone have an idea what I could change, implement to get right results?

Best, Lucas
