 January 18, 2005, 06:05 Dynamic Meshing Problems #1 Shuto Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am moving a small body rapidly across a large domain and using dynamic meshing to accomplish this. I have the following problems: 1. Using a low spring constant for smoothing improves cells close to the body but cells farther out become compressed and highly skewed. A high spring constant creates many enlarged and poor quality cells close to the body. 2. The regions adjacent to the body always develop many highly skewed cells, reducing max skewness means that many miniscule cells appear. Neither is satisfactory. 3. Regardless of any parameter I change, remeshing always introduces large, often double-sized cells at random locations. Sometimes these heal, sometimes they don't. Can anyone offer any advice on improving Fluent's remeshing behaviour? I have been through all the notes and every tutorial available and still cannot solve these issues. Regards, Shuto.

Perhaps looking at that I might help you. CFDtoy

It is so slow it can take a few minutes just to remesh once. From the lecture notes and tutorials it should be possible to control the cell size adequately using size function parameters but I just can't seem to get it to work. In the case you asked about I would use 0.99a e-15 and 1.01b e-11 and try to make the size function control the size this way. I tend to use a low max skew (0.3 to 0.4) as this seems to prevent large cells forming. Thanks, J.
