We currently use Solidworks to design high performance 2 cycle engines for racing karts. We would like to perform in cylinder CFD analysis while the piston is going from compression to expansion (moving boundary condition). We recently purchased Cosmos Floworks PE for other applications. I don't think this software handles moving boundaries. Any suggestions on which software or consulting companies we should look at?

Try AVL, or Ricardo Consultancy. AVL has incylinder flow capabilities.

Hope it helps.

Star-cd, Fire and Vectis seem to be the 3 codes to dominate this market.

CFDRC http://www.cfdrc.com (now ESI Group) also have capabilities to do moving boundaries. But their customer support is pretty bad.
