I am trying to model a CFD simulation for a sailboat (with rigid type sail).
As conventional CFD approach (VOF multiphase), I am able to perform Dynamic Fluid Body Interaction (DFBI) [or Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI)] simulation for incoming water condition at given speed and wind direction. Note that the boat is kept fixed in water flow-direction.
Now, I want to do the simulation other way around. Target is that the blowing wind (independent of water-direction) should now allow(propel) the boat to move forward in water which is initially set at quiescent condition.
Does anyone has idea about how to setup this problem?
