Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous. 2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them. 3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window. 4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials

Owen Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 196 Rep Power: 9 If you use ckleanth's method, which I have used many times, be sure to create a subdomain for the entire domain and specify the rigid body mesh motion on it, so that you avoid distortion of the internal mesh due to "mesh inertia", and the associated numerical errors associated with it. In other words, if you only specify the motion on the external surfaces, that motion will only diffuse into the internal mesh, distorting it, rather than carrying it along whole "for the ride", so to speak.

 July 29, 2009, 03:24 Thank you all #6 New Member   Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 7 Rep Power: 9 I was on holydays. I will check the results and compare them with some available theoritical and experimental data and get back here soon.
