bamby46 is on a distinguished road
Hello CFD-community,

i am very new to this forum but started working with OpenFOAM in order to simulate mircofluidic devices and didnīt find anything that helps unfortunately.

I am considering two open to atmosphere reservoirs connected by a channel on a disc that will be rotated. The upper reservoir is filled with a liquid which starts to flow down when rotated. Is there any lib which i can use or how could i start? Has anybody had a similar problem? The crucial part here is that it is a 3D system where the cetrifugal field induces different forces.

Thank you in advance!
