Description: SOLA-VOF: A solution algorithm for transient fluid flow with multiple free boundaries. In this report a simple, but powerful, computer program is presented for the solution of two-dimensional transient fluid flow with free boundaries. The SOLA-VOF program, which is based on the concept of a fractional volume of fluid (VOF), is more flexible and efficient than other methods for treating arbitrary free boundaries. SOLA-VOF has a variety of user options that provide capabilities for a wide range of applications. Its basic mode of operation is for single fluid calculations having multiple free surfaces. However, SOLA-VOF can also be used for calculations involving two fluids separated by a sharp interface. In either case, the fluids may be treated as incompressible or as having limited compressibility. Surface tension forces with wall adhesion are permitted in both cases. Internal obstacles may be defined by blocking out any desired combination of cells in the mesh, which is composed of rectangular cells of variable size. SOLA-VOF is an easy-to-use program. Its logical parts are isolated in separate subroutines, and numerous special features have been included to simplify its operation, such as an automatic time-step control, a flexible mesh generator, extensive output capabilities, a variety of optional boundary conditions, and instructive internal documentation
