i am trying to simulate a baffle that is closed the first 60 sec. then it opens for the fluid for 60 sec and so on.
There for I wanted to use a sin - function like that:
sin (xxxx) > 0 -> baffle open
sin (xxxx) < 0 -> baffle closed
In that case it should be possible to use groovyBC is that correct?
Further more is it possible to solve that problem with an steady-state solver?
And finally - what patchtype should it be?
In my opinion it could be a patch type
Thanks in advance tobi

You can accomplish the same thing with attachDetach mesh modifier. This requires to have a new topoChangerFvMesh; you can probably use the one I submitted for this bug report:
Make sure you make the change mentioned in the third to last note about creating a new pointfield and then moving the points.
This is working in both 1.6-ext and 2.2.x.
