Hi,


I would like to know if OpenFOAM or any other simulation programm provides algorithms to properly simulate flow behaviours especially of liquids within complex pipe systems over time? As an example I add the following picture:

I would say, take your time designing such a mesh, using blockMesh or snappyHexMesh containing a stl.file of an appropriate shape, and OpenFOAM should do it.
