Hello everyone ,

Would someone help me figuring out how and where to turn on the suface tension in interFoam ?

I have begun my work starting from the damBreak tutorial where it was already set off and i actually modify it to create a spherical droplet .

Thank you.

akidess will become famous soon enough
Surface tension is always included in interFoam. The coefficient is called sigma in transportProperties.
