just a question...
To obtain "smooth" and free surface realistic simulation with Autodesk Simulation CFD 2014 like this:
or ( from min 0:42 )
is it only a question of meshing?
Or there is some particular setting?
Which are the setting for this examples?
Howlong does they take? And with which machines?
For animations like this there are 3 things
Meshing to capture the shape
Timestep size to ensure we are capturing the evolution of the fluid
Many save intervals for the animation.
This will create a very large data set
But even more than that, what matters is what you want from a bulky simulation! CFD is warranted only if you are extracting meaningful results (like say the forces on the walls of tank due to sloshing etc). If animation is the only objective, there are dedicated animation packages
