Re: deforming mesh
The Fluent 6.0 tutorials can be found at this website. ( There are a couple of moving grid tutorials. See chapter 10 (Using Sliding Meshes) on sliding grids and also chapters 7 and 8 of the Tutorial Guide. Also look at chapter 9 of User Guide(Modeling Flows in Moving Zones). Hope it helps.

Re: deforming mesh
hi,torn do you have fluent4.5 ? the model of moving and deforming mesh is a separate model, if you buy this model ,you can get these tutorials . but I have nothing.

I want to simulate the fuild flow in scroll compressor chamber ,it is similar to your problem, how about you ?

any advice is appreciated. bonny

Re: deforming mesh
Hi Bonny, I think your research is so difficult. your mesh are moving and deforming. I don't know how to model geometry when the roter contact the stator. and I think both fluent 4(structured) and fluent 6 (unstructured) can not apply to this application but star-cd may be.

what is version of fluent that you used?

my advice may be incorrect, don't worry.

Re: deforming mesh
Could you explain why your mesh needs to deform?
