Default initial guess 6DOF-solver

Hi all,

I would like to calculate the track of an object in a tube using the 6DOF-solver. My problem is that I need an good intial guess from a situation in which the object already has a velocity.

The first step I did was to calculate the flow field in the pipe without object. The second step was to interpolate this velocity field on the grid with object. I have managed to do this but then the object still has velocity zero. How can I get a decent velocity here?

Regards, Astrid
