Thanks, a a saha.

Take a look in particular, the dynamic contact angle calcs. Go through the code and see whether the framework will suit your requirements. Kind Regards Jaswi

Hi saha,

Did you implement your dynamic contact angle in interFoam. I would be so grateful if you share your experience with me.

Thanks,
MEhran
