 June 10, 2005, 08:55 boundary condition on a wall #1 Stéphane Guest   Posts: n/a I'm studying a fixed circular cylinder in Fluent. I'd like to impose an instantaneous constant velocity on this fixed object, as if the movement of the cylinder were quasistatic. The trouble is that for Fluent, the boundary condition on a wall corresponds a zero normal velocity. I've tried to use an udf but it doesn't work. Has anyone an idea to solve this problem ?

If the cylinder is moving parallel to the system's solid boundaries, then you can fix the cylinder in place and move the boundaries with the opposite velocity. If there are two solid boundaries that are moving toward one another, however, then it is true that Fluent doesn't seem to provide a capability to find the "quasi-steady" velocity in a straightforward manner.
