 January 6, 2002, 07:02 Calculations with moving boundaries #1 Rene Francesco Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I'm searching for a method to be used in a problem with no fix boundaries. An object is moving in a fluid. I'd prefer to use a fix euler orthogonal grid, if it will be possible of course. Thank you.

 January 7, 2002, 13:45 Re: Calculations with moving boundaries #2 Fabio Saltara Guest   Posts: n/a Some are using the immerse boundary method for this type of problem. The method is also called " Boundary Body forces " and a good reference would be " Large eddy simulation in complex geometric configurations using boundary body forces ", by Verzicco et al., AIAA Journal, Vol. 38, No. 3, Mrach 2000.

 January 8, 2002, 08:07 References on Boundary Body forces #3 Rene Francesco Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you very much for your advice, it's very intrestin'. Do you know if there is an electronic documentation on this subject in www ?

 January 8, 2002, 09:22 Re: References on Boundary Body forces #4 Fabio Saltara Guest   Posts: n/a You should go to www.idealibrary.com , and try the advanced search. Choose the Journal of Computational Physics, and type " immersed boundary " in the option for the key words. You will get some papers from Peskin, Verzicco , Cortez and other guys working with the method. Professor Charles Peskin is one of the most involved researchers about this topic.

 January 8, 2002, 15:43 it can be enough interesting... #5 Rene Francesco Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks, it works ! But it's a pity that it's not a free resource... As you understand, I can't be sure that it's exactly what I need, so I'm not ready to pay for now. Maybe you know if it's possible to find some free docs about the basics of this numerical approach ?
