VOF initialization from surface mesh

Volume-of-Fluid and Moment-of-Fluid initialization from surface meshes

Pacman MOF

Advection of shapes in a uniform vector field with the Moment-of-Fluid method. Complex shapes are initialized using basic shapes (discs, rectangles), transformations (translation, scale, and rotation) and boolean operators (union, intersection, and difference).

Notus parser

Creation of the Notus parser. Features: variable declaration, typed expressions, control structures, scope management

DHHD of a THI field

Discrete Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition of a 2D slice of a turbulent flow. From left to right: irrotational part, original field, solenoidal part. The color represents the magnitude of the potentials for the irrotational part and the solenoidal part. Vector fields are represented by the LIC method (Line Integral Convolution)

DHHD on polyhedral meshes

Example of polyhedral meshes used for the validation of the Discrete Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition using Compatible Discrete Operators. The meshes come from the FVCA 6 benchmark.
