i am facing a problem when determining the motion of my journal bearing. i have a lower plate which is rotating and a upper plate which is supposed to be translating. But i am unable to determine the translating motion in the CFD..... What am i supposed to do to perform the translating motion using CFD?? thanks

Hi Zxi Toh,

You can do this using the moving mesh capability of CFX. In versions 5.6 and before this is a beta feature only. Talk to your CFX support rep about how to use it.

Moving mesh will be a fully supported feature of the next release of CFX.
