Hi everyone.

I have used Ansys 13 (fluent) to do a 2D flapping swimmer wing analysis. I wrote udf and calculated net force and linear velocity after 1 cycle. I want to measure the displacement due to this flapping. How to see swimmer moving?

Thanks in advance.

Now a days no body is replying my questions....! may be my questions are vague and incomplete?

But I thank everyone, I found the answer...

I have to use 6DOF solver for making my body to move!!!

It is true. Cfd is dying. I read somewhere :
"CFD is something like making soup from stone. take stone and boil with the water. people started drinking and some one said it is tasty. so did many. some one said add little salt, little tomato etc...people said it is tasty without knowing it is their addition which added taste to the soup.
this is how CFD is made from nothing..."
