Re: moving heat source on fluent
 
YOU CAN HAVE A MOVING SOURCE. FIRST OF ALL, TO CREATE A SOURCE YOU MUST ADAPT A REGION AND THEN CREATE A SEPARATE CELL ZONE.(UNTIL HERE I HOPE YOU AGREE). THIS CELL ZONE IN 2-D HAS 2 INTERIORS ONE IS THE OUTLINE AND THE OTHER THE CELLS INSIDE. YOU IMPOSE YOUR CONDITIONS TO BOTH (DYNAMIC MESH ZONES IN DYNAMIC MESH PARAMETERS).YOU HAVE TO MAKE A C++ FILE DESCRIBING THE MOTION OF THESE ZONES WITH THE CLASSIC COMPILING PROCEDURE.
