mer is on a distinguished road
In reading of the PHD. Thesis of HENRIK RUSCHE, I'm stopped about ponit of the : motion of the
moving reference frame when simulating a bubble. my question, when I simulate the bubble with OpenFOAM
and if my boundary conditions contain a situation like discussed in the thesis, should I "re-compile" the code
again or there is a solver in the OpenFOAM which do that (update of the boundary conditions, the velocity
of the moving frame, etc.).

hjasak will become famous soon enough
Yes: a non-inertial reference frame will add new terms to the momentum equation and you will need to customize the solver.
