Is there a well documented articles or thesis on LES and RAS InterFOAM solvers?
Any help?!

There are descriptions of InterFoam in Ubbink and Rusche's thesis which I think you can find on-line at For the LES and RAS side of things you'll have to look in the code.

Thanks Pierre;
I see the vof method in Ubbink and Rusche's thesis, but I'm looking for the turbulent version of the InterFoam.
By the way, the site you give me is very interesting.

Well I know I think I have somewhere on paper the description of LES-VOF, i.e. it is stored meticulously in one of my piles on my desk. Hem. But I don't think I have it electronically. I think it is a SAE paper. You can ask Eugene de Villiers if he still has a copy (he wrote the article)

Yes, thanks Pierre and Jasak.
Yes, thanks Pierre and Jasak.

But, the article is not available alone. It is in a Special Publication of the SAE 2004 World Congress: Modeling: Diesel Engines, Multi-Dimensional Engine, and Vehicle and Engine Systems.

I wish if the authors can send me freely a copy of the article.
