VOF and ALE compatible?

Post by ffan » Wed May 29, 2019 4:16 am

Hi CS users,

Can VOF be used with ALE at the same time? For example, if the cylinder in the fluid-solid interaction tutorial case is immersed in a free surface flow, and the model requires VOF and ALE together. Thanks.

Hello,
It should be compatible but we don’t have any validation test case for that so that would be nice if you could set up a toy model test case to check if it is working correctly.
If not, that will not be a big deal to fix (ALE is mainly impacting the other fields updating convective mass flux, if that is correct the rest should be ok).

Best Regards
Martin

Hello,

VOF and ALE can be used simultaneously. I did some test with a wave generator.

Be careful with the version that you are using becouse were a bug fixed in the ALE Bc (commit 4b879fa).

Regards,

Luciano
