Dear Foamers,

I would appreciate your help at my problem.
Im trying to simulate a two fluid flow (oil and water) in a duct.
You can see the mesh layout in the attached picture.

I must use turbulence to the water but not to the oil. How can i do that ?

Please, i need help at checking the BCs, because my bounding epsilon explodes after simulating 300 steps.

Thank you very much.

Phase specific turbulence models are not available with interFoam. Please have a look at phase turbulence models available in turbulenceModels. I think they can be used with twoPhaseEulerFoam.
