Simulation of Euler-lagrangian bubble using OpenFOAM

Dear sir/madam, Greetings!!! I would like to simulate the rising of a number of lagrangian bubbles (lagrangian particle tracking) in a eulerian water phase using VOF free surface behaviour capturing using OpenFOAM. (Ref. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSw3Atl2rwA) Please, can you guide me in this regard? Thanks in advance. With regards, Anirban IIT Kharagpur

Hi Anirban,

You can start with solving some cases in interFoam solver and let us know about your progress.

Hi rahuljoshi,

First of all, thanks for answering.
Secondly, \r\nas i want to simulate the lagrangian bubbles using DNS only considering \r\nthe drag, lift, added mass, gravity etc forces, which test case i should\r\n run in the interFoam solver among 'capillaryRise', 'damBreak', \r\n'mixerVessel2D'. I am confused which test case will be appropriate in \r\nthis regard.
I am using OpenFOAM-3.0.1/../tutorials/multiphase/interFoam/laminar.

Hi Anirban,

You can start with cappilaryRise case. This will give you an idea about implementing volume fraction in OpenFOAM. After this you can proceed with your own problem.
