ich558 is on a distinguished road
Dear All,

I am shacking a small tube about 7mm Diameter und 12 mm high with a starting Fluid of 60Ál of Water with 1100rpm.
I am using the multiphaseInterFoam with surface tension and contact angle water to air.
The Problem is that after 1.1s time the fluid is just something like 50% left.
I tried diffenret CFL-Numbers, smaller timestep, more cells, higher precision (12) and some changes in fvSolver and fvSchemes.
I am a bit lost and hope for new input.

Thanks in advance
