Default HELP PLEASE ! Forced oscillation
Posts: n/a

I am trying to model a forced oscillation of a cylinder in still water. Does anyone know how to do it? I got the model and meshing for the cylinder and everything, but just dont know how to apply a force to the cylinder so that it will oscillates, do we have to use dynamic mesh?

Please help, really appreciates it!

Thanks, Ken

Most likely you will have to resort to using Dynamic Mesh and prescribed a UDF for the frequency and amplitude of the oscillations. By the way, have you ever modelled a freely vibrating cylinder? My project is about teh same sort of thngs. Feel free to discuss.
