Default Particle motion in laminar flow

Hello folks,

I want to simulate the dynamic motion of a rigid particle in laminar flow, doesn't matter 2d or 3d, very similar to this thread, but with much smaller particle diameter (about 1/5 to 1/10 of pipe/channel diameter). So I expect to have rotational (due to shear stress) and translational movement.

Now I would be grateful if anybody could help me with my questions:
  1. Which package would be more suitable for this purpose CFX or Fluent? (I want to compare results with our in-house solver.)
  2. How can I define moving mesh and immersed body in this case and get the local/temporal drag and lift forces.
  3. Is it possible to use a structured mesh (multi-block of course) for this purpose or am I forced to use unstructured tet auto mesh generation?
Thanks

I have not found a way. I really counted on a posting my question here.

I try to repost it in CFX forum. Maybe somebody could help us.

As I found your problem is not a particle tracking problem which can be modeled as DPM in FLUENT and as you mentioned you should use Dynamic Mesh Model in FLUENT.
For your case the 6DOF module of Dynamic Mesh shall be used ans as you don't know the particle path prior to solution I propose you use re-meshing as Updating Method so unstructured grid is more suitable. Beside these you know that FLUENT uses only Unstructured grids and the difference are only in grid Regularity and shapes and not in their structure
Foe more information you can find some lectures in the website
