Best Poster prize at 12th OpenFOAM Workshop

12th OpenFOAM Workshop at University of Exeter, UK

2017/11/16

Dirk Gründing was awarded the prize for the Best Poster at the 12 th OpenFOAM Workshop (July 24th-27th, 2017, University of Exeter, UK), for his poster entitled "Wetting processes with ALE interface tracking".

Gründing (project B02) presented a method to simulate wetting processes by OpenFOAM's ALE interface tracking method. With this approach, a variety of dynamic contact angle models can be run-time selected. Numerical results are compared to an approximate analytical solution for the rise of a liquid in a capillary. Furthermore, the implementation is validated by comparison to experimental data for the reorientation of a free liquid interface in a partly filled right circular cylinder upon gravity step reduction.
