The CFD package OpenFoam with the VOF approach of the interFoam solver is used to simulate water drops in Exxsol D80 oil, with diameter ranging from 100 micrometer to 1000 micrometer. Parasitic currents are caused by the modelling of surface tension force through the CSF approach, and their magnitude is studied to validate the quality of the results.
