I have made the solver myself, so I used icoDyMFoam on the "movingConeMotion" tutorial, and the same behaviour is found for a decomposed case (2 processors).

My question is twofold: (i) Is it possible to

Note that the wall boundary needs to be specified in terms of absolute velocity, so a moving wall with no flux through it will not have fixedValue (0 0 0). If this is the problem use the movingWallVelocity b.c., which corrects the normal component based on the mesh motion.

As a test,

The mesh motion works using the latest development code using the oscillatingFixedValue boundary condition. Now I am considering oscillating bodies (flat plates and cylinders) on different grids at low Reynolds numbers to see how the grid motion behaves.

I've got the following questions/remarks:

1) On coarse grids the meh motion performs very nicely, but on finer grids the mesh gots distorted near the body causing the flow solver to diverge. Since

## How to let the mesh motion solver just solve a small region near a moving boundary?

So how to let the mesh motion solver just solve a small region near a moving boundary? Can someone give me a hint?
Thanks!
