I compute the motion of threee
I compute the motion of threee bubbles with interFoam. The cGamma is 1.5 for 3D case. From the following jpg figure, we can find some dirty fragments. These fragments may be introduced by the algorithm embedded in interFoam? I have not got idea to solve this problem. Can anyone give me any advie?
time=0.1s and time=.35s: http://www.cfdonline.com/OpenFOAM_D...ages/1/965.jpg http://www.cfdonline.com/OpenFOAM_D...ages/1/966.jpg Thanks. 
The result for the single mode
The result for the single mode RT instability is as follows:

It is not clear that those fragments are incorrect, they may be a natural consequence of a breakup process caused by the updraft in the wake of the middle bubble but they may also be numerical as you suggest. What schemes are you using for the terms of the U an gamma equations?

The scheme list:

The scheme list:
ddtSchemes { // Default scheme default Euler; } // Gradient discretisation schemes gradSchemes { // Default gradient scheme default Gauss linear; grad(U) Gauss linear; grad(gamma) Gauss linear; } // Convection discretisation schemes divSchemes { div(rho*phi,U) Gauss upwind; div(phi,gamma) Gauss Gamma201 0.2; div(phirb,gamma) Gauss Gamma201 1; } // Laplacian discretisation schemes laplacianSchemes { // Default scheme default Gauss linear corrected; } // Interpolation schemes interpolationSchemes { // Default scheme default linear; } // Surface normal gradient schemes snGradSchemes { // Default scheme default corrected; } // Calculation of flux fluxRequired { // Create storage for flux for all solved variables? default no; pd; pcorr; gamma; } I will try to do some tests with different schemes. Thanks.

I don't think your choice of schemes are appropriate for thise case, in particular upwind on U will cause a lot of unnecessary damping and given that your case is low Re you could probably use linear of if that gives trouble Gamma2V 1. However, this will not affect the fragmentation of the interface, to see if this is real or numerical try with
div(phi,gamma) Gauss Gamma01 1; div(phirb,gamma) Gauss Gamma01 1;
