Model geometry

We calculate a dam-break problem with three liquids: water, oil, and mercury, for 6 seconds. The calculation is performed as a two-dimensional problem with a single mesh in the Z direction.

The properties of each fluid are specified in the file "constant/transportProperties" as follows.

phases ( water { nu 1e-06; kappa 1e-06; Cp 4195; rho 1000; diameterModel constant; constantCoeffs { d 1e-3; } } oil { nu 1e-06; kappa 1e-06; Cp 4195; rho 500; diameterModel constant; constantCoeffs { d 1e-3; } } mercury { nu 1.125e-07; kappa 1e-06; Cp 4195; rho 13529; diameterModel constant; constantCoeffs { d 1e-3; } } air { nu 1.48e-05; kappa 2.63e-2; Cp 1007; rho 1; diameterModel constant; constantCoeffs { d 3e-3; } } );

The interaction between the phases is also specified in the file "constant/transportProperties".

The meshes are as follows, and the number of mesh is 2268.

The calculation result is as follows.

The ID values of each fluid are as follows.

- Water: 0.0
- Oil: 1.0
- Mercury: 2.0
- Air: 3.0

Fluids at final time (alphas)

At final time, we can see that each fluid is divided into layers by density.
