I’m currently doing FSI coupling adopting our in-house solver (solid part) and openfoam (fluid part). However, there is a question that’s been bothering me:
The case I want to simulate includes a porous media baffle, with water on the left side and no water on the right. I want to simulate the process that water on the left flows into the porous media and then flows into the right side.
In my simulatioin, the seepage velocity (from the soil to the fluid domain) at the interface is calculated by solid part. Then, there should be more water at the interface in fluid domain. I’ve managed to couple the seepage velocity on the interface in OF, but how could I add the water due to the seepage according to the velocity at the interface? Could anyone please give me any hints?
Thanks in advance!
