First time user - Which Model to use

Hi,

I am trying to model a particle moving through the air via gravity and impacting a liquid and getting imbedded into a glue like liquid.

Is this a CFD model or a mechanics model? Are there any tutorials or models to learn this type of model?

Many thanks,

Re: First time user - Which Model to use

Hi

you will probably have to check the level set of CFD models, or some FSI ? but if your "particle is a solid" and you want to see it deform its a mixture, else you can probably get around only within CFD and the pre-cooked modles.

Have you checked the model library ? there should eb an example of a ball falling in a fluid, in a tube (but you hae no free fall before hitting the fluid I believe)

Good luck
Ivar
