Hello,

I am looking to see if I can use OpenFoam to predict the flow rate and time to drain out oil from a pipeline due to a rupture (may be modeled as an orifice). This is a incompressible flow but needs to be solved by first starting with the pipeline completely filled. Once the rupture in the pipeline occurs, the pump will be shut off. I am looking to predict the flow rate and the time to drain. The pipeline will also have variations in elevations that follow the terrain.

Could you please let me know which tutorial file and the best solver that would suit this problem?

Thanks for reading and for your help!

This should be doable with interFoam solver.
