Flow Induced Vibrations in OpenFOAM

Posted January 31, 2012 at 00:50 by aravindh28.4

My work for B.Tech thesis is on Flow Induced Vibrations- Flow around a circular cylinder.

The geometry is as follows...

A long cylinder is suspended on 4 springs-2 at 2 ends from top along the length and 2 right below them. The axis of the cylinder is horizontal. The arrangement is such that the transverse vibrations are in the direction of the spring axes.

For this, I am using OpenFOAM version2.1.0, and tutorials/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/wingMotion/wingMotion2D_pimpleDyMFoam as a reference.

I am right now struggling to find out what the orientation tensor and angularMomentum entries in 0/pointDisplacement file means. Also, I need a clear understanding of how the anchor entry of linearSpring works.

    Also, I need to know the meaning of the orientation tensor and angularMomentum and other fields in 0/pointDisplacement file. And how I the anchor entry of linearSpring works.
