cyasing17 is on a distinguished road
Since ferrofluid is a non-Newtonian magnetic fluid, I was wondering if it was possible to do a Multiphysics simulation here in OpenFOAM of a ferrofluid interacting with water and solid. Due to the movements of the ferrofluid, there will be changing magnetic fields around it, which I want to capture using a coil. I am new to the software, so I wanted to know if such a simulation is possible with it.

Basically, it will be multiphase flow between Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids (air-water, water-ferrofluid, maybe air-ferrofluid as well). Then a fluid-solid interaction needs to be coupled (the ferrofluid will be in a half-open solid structure, imagine a ). Finally, the Electromagnetic solver needs to be added for the coil.

I know it is a lot, but can I achieve this using OpenFOAM?
