A short video showing the results from running Ocellaris on the green water 3D dam breaking benchmark by Kleefsman et al. (2005) 1 has been uploaded to YouTube and is also embedded below.

The input files, results, and plotting scripts can be found on Zenodo. A paper describing the simulation is also available 2.
