Filling of a beer maßkrug
CFD analysis of the filling of a bavarian beer jar (Maßkrug). The simulation has been done with the multiphase analysis type. The study has been done on a very coarse mesh to reduce the simulation time as the project has been created rather to show-case the capabilities than to get very accurate results. In the comparison result screenshot you can see how boundary layers help preventing unphysical flow patterns.
