— interFoam, multiphase, arbitrary scenario —
The following OpenFOAM® case was created during Tobias' time at the Montanuniversität Leoben. Here, a statement of his colleague Christian Rodrigues should be proved for the ongoing research. The case should demonstrate that the flow field is strong enough to keep the force balance between the droplet's gravity acceleration and the flow that is coming from the bottom. Hence, the droplets should stay at the same place. The outcome was something different, more related to colorful fluid dynamics rather than scientific investigation. However, more phenomena are taken place at once here. The non-physical inlet condition, as well as the 2D simplification, provide an impressive splashing event and, thus, a fantastic velocity distribution. Sometimes, this is sufficient for Tobias to share his cases with the community. Thanks for reading. By the way, did you know that Tobias plays table-tennis?

gThe available training cases are tested and built for different OpenFOAM® versions. During the tests, only the OpenFOAM Foundation version of OpenFOAM® was used. Furthermore, the following software packages are required for most of the training cases: Salome®, ParaView®, and for optimization tasks one also needs DAKOTA®. The cases might work with the ESI version of OpenFOAM® too (not tested). Additionally, there is no support for Windows-based OpenFOAM® versions.
