mesh morphing
 
Hi all

Iīd like to simulate blood flow. I know that the newer version of star-ccm+ has mesh morphing technology. Is this a good model to simulate the veinīs contraction/expansion?

Anyone who has already used that model before can tell me if I need a powerfull hardware to run that model?

Thanks

Re: mesh morphing
 
The morpher works well, but in this application you probably want the mesh to move based on local fluid forces, which is not in STAR-CCM+ yet, so you need to specify you own mesh movement via field functions or whatever. It adds a little to solve times in my limited usage.
