Dynamic Mesh: Rotating a box?
 
I am trying to understand how to use dynamic meshing in FLUENT. I would like to rotate a 2D box about some point(centroid or anywhere else) with a simple oscillatory motion: theta = amplitude * sin(omega * time). What is the simplest way to do this? Thanks in advance! -B

Instead of using a dynamic mesh, I think using a sliding mesh would be better and easier for your case. Please refer to the sliding mesh tutorial.
