 March 19, 2004, 05:12 Can fluent simulate this? #1 Ryan Guest   Posts: n/a I use VOF model to simulate the free surface flow (air and water). Now I want to include a vertically moving object into it. The object is submerged by water, moving up at a constant speed until a little below the surface of water. The objective is to study the effect of object motion on free surface flow. Can Fluent simulate it? I had accomplished the simulation of free surface flow without moving object. How can the motion be included? Any adjustments to the previous work? regards

 March 23, 2004, 08:42 Re: Can fluent simulate this? #4 Ryan Guest   Posts: n/a Is your problem related to water's compressibility? However, in my problem, objects' velocity is very low, and water can be treated as uncompressible. I don't know how to include object's vertical motion into the simulation. How did you handle it? If uncompressible, could Fluent 6.1 do this? Another question, when will 6.2 be published?

 March 23, 2004, 08:53 Re: Can fluent simulate this? #5 phil Guest   Posts: n/a No my problem isnt related to water compressibility as such, basically i am trying to model bouyancy of an object and trhe motion relative to small changes in free surface position. I'm afraid I can't remember the full explanation as to why the water needs to be treated as compressible (only a very small compressibility)however it did seem to make sense at the time. I have seen a case modelled in a pre-release version of 6.2 and it appears to work ok. As for when its available, im not sure i was told that beta versions would be released shortly. It is probably worth your while contacting fluent to find out beta release and full release dates
