Turbulence model for CFX moving mesh
Hello, everyone
I'm analyzing a safety valve using both transient flow and moving mesh. First, I simulated the steady state using several turbulence model and compared these results with the test result, it's found that the kw model got the best result and consumed lesser time. The question is, can we use the kw model as the turbulence model for the transient flow analysis with moving grid. It's said the such model as SST can get the better result for the steady analysis, but will become very cumbersome and expensive for unsteady simulation, since it need to calculate the distance from the wall after each iteration. I'm not clear that if kw also need to do that. Could somebody explain it ? Thanks very much. 
Hi,
The wall distance calculation does not take very long compared to the momentum and pressure equations. It should not slow things down too much. Why don't you just try them both and see for yourself? Glenn Horrocks 
Thanks,
I did it. not so big effect as you said. Thanks. 
Valve
I am a new usr also want to do directional control valve analysis from where to selct moving mesh.

Hi,
Sounds like you need to do some tutorials. There are several tutorials on the moving mesh capability  they will give you the basics. Glenn Horrocks 
Moving mesh
Sir please tell me source for tutorial practice.

Hi,
Try Help/Tutorials. Was that so hard to guess where they could be? Glenn Horrocks 
if you use ansys cfx 12.0, you may have several selection for moving mesh: remeshing with ICEM CFD, solid commersed function(?) and full good hex mesh.
the help document doesn't give enough tutorial, you should find some more at the internet. and if you really can't find any, you can contact me. songxguan@gmail.com
