    HI,

    OpenFVM has interesting capabilities.  I am wondering if surface tension (and contact angle) can be specified in free surface flow?

    Also, I noticed that it supports solving energy equation.  I am wondering if it can solve conjugate heat transfer (convection) with both liquid elements (flow) and solid elements (conduction)?

    Do it support polyhedral elements?  Can it read cartesian mesh with local refinement?

    Thanks!

    Pei

      Surface tension was considered in version 0.2 but it hasn't been completely parallelised yet so it isn't included in the latest version.

      For now it only supports two phases, solid-liquid, liquid-air, etc.

      It supports polyhedral elements but it is limited for now to Gmsh element types.

      Regards,
