My model is a 2D rectangular channel. I am able to move the upper and lower walls of the channel along Y axis (using UDF, DEFINE_GEOM). However, when I try to move these walls also in the X axis it says error.

Is it possible to move a wall along X and Y directions using UDF or any other method?

Moving along the wall surface itself should not be modeled with dynamic mesh, instead it may be simulated with boundary condition of the wall.

I am using udf to move the upper and lower walls . I tried to move these walls along the X axis using boundary condition(using moving wall), but when I do that it just take the udf and ignore the boundary condition.

Thank you, I opened it.
However my 2D channel is expanding (which I already did) and moving along X axis. How do you do it both???

if you have a function of boundary nodes changes with time, you can do that with implementation of smoothing tool in dynamic mesh.

Hi,
I am new to CFD online and recently started working with fluent...can anybody help with my model of a liquid in rectangular tank which has a half-circular patch at its base of a second fluid? now I want to move the left and right wall opposite to each other (inwards) and see the effect on the second fluid...but with moving wall boundary condition along +ve and -ve xdirection,the resultant vectors doesn't show any such motions...
please suggest the boundary condition and the model that should be used in this case( I was using VOf)
