surf Tension is a micro solver which adds surface tension forces to a FLIP simulation. This allows you to create cool droplet effects and crown splashes quickly and easily. You can control surface forces, drop scale, and exclude regions of fluid from the computation through bounding geometry. This is particularly useful for optimization but also for excluding regions of bulk fluids from the surface forces so only splashes are affected. The micro solver should be plugged into the third input of the FLIP solver (see image) and best results are obtained by enabling " swirley kernel" under the sub menu "volume motion". It may also be advantageous to disable reseeding of particles.
