Default Flat floating platform hinged in the middle(HELP)
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

i am modelling a flat platform with a hinge at the middle ,floating in wave tank and i need to calculate the displacament due to the waves.

how to set the hinge constraint in fluent?????

i am thinking of doing it by taking both the sides individually as solid bodies. but the problem is then how to set the constraint between the two bodies in the 6 DOF solver with a UDF.

Please help its urgent.Please someone Thanks in advance.
