How can I rotate this?:
I want to rotate some patches.
Please see the attached picture.
The big circle is a patch and the five smaller circles in the big circle are patches.
I want to rotate the big circle patch and the smaller circles with it. And also the smaller circle patches doing oscillating rotating motion.
How can I do this?
I am absolute beginner, so could you please explain in detail or give me an example.
Thanks in advance,
when I try t to rotate first only the big circle by typing this:
motionSolverLibs ( "libfvMotionSolvers.so" );
CofG (0 0 0);
radialVelocity (0 360 0);
the whole Mesh is rotating from what I can see in paraFoam
Q1) Is this the right function to do the motions describes above?
Q2) And if so what do I do wrong, because the entire Mesh is rotating?
does anybody know why with the above mentioned code, the whole Mesh is rotating but not only the chosen patch?
Please give me Ideas, did anybody have a similar problem?
If you wish I can send you the whole case to find the problems solution.
Many thanks in advance,
A few questions:
Q1) I am using the OpenFOAM-2.01 /tutorials/multiphase/interDymFoam/ras/testTubeMixer/constant/dynamicMeshDict-file which I found in the internet which shows solidBodyMotionFunction multiMotion.
Q2) I am using OpenFOAM version 2.1.1.
Q3) I use solver pimpleDyMFoam to do solidBodyMotion.
I ve never heared of MRF or GGI/AMI
you wrote something of AMI, so I tried to use the mixerVesselAMI2D tutorial in pimpleDyMFoam. I copied my blockMeshDict file in it and modified 0/p und 0/U also dynamicMeshDict file and ControlDict file. But I get the following error message:

I dont know what I am doing wrong, can you give me ideas or do you know what can be the reason for this error?
Given your experience, what you should do is to take smaller steps:
I have only this week left to get my case run. So I can't experiment much.
Could you please tell my how I can run this case and replace m4 mesh generation with my mesh.
Just give me something that I can run the case, its very urgent.
I also will follow your steps as far as I can go in these three days.
Many thanks in advance,
I really appreciate your help,
Sorry, but I'm busy as well this week and AMI is not a piece of cake. I suggest you try the sub-forum CFD Freelancers and request help there.
Best regards and good luck!
Thanks Bruno, I will try that.
