3D dam-break simulation

In this case, we compare the numerical results obtained with OpenFOAM-6, against the experimental results obtained by the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN).

The case available for download is set with a coarse mesh. The results shown in the image below and the animations, were obtained using approximately 10 million cells.
