Default modelling a vibrating circle

Hi Part of my project is to attempt to model a pulsating circle.

I'd like to see it create variations in the pressure of the fluid, the output would look like the ripples in a pond when a stone has been thrown in.

Have no idea where to start so any information, no matter how basic would be much appreciated.

I am new to the product so keep answers as simply put as possible please.

Thanks

What kind of oscillations the circle performs.There are many analytical solutions available for radially oscillating problems.Check any book on acoustics.

A simple sinusoidally varying oscillation will do, any books in particular that you'd recomend, preferable directly compatible with FLUENT?

Also i have been told that the problem involves dynamic meshes, are there any help guides that you would advise?

Acoustics book by Morse and Ingard is a classical book and you can find many similar problems in there.As a first step I would not advice using a dynamic mesh since your oscillations are just sinusoidal.Look in the literature.The sinusoidal oscillations can be used as a boundary condition for solving the problem rather than using dynamic meshes.

I suggest you try using matlab for solving this problem. If the governign equations are simple, u can easily code them. lots of visualization tools too.
