Hi Foamer's,

I'm working on the IBM in the foam-extend next release testing version (3.2).

  • What to do if the IB is moving? -> Probably use the movePoints() stuff.
  • But what to do if the IB is also deforming?

Trying to assign the deformed boundary through a new tri-surfase (.stl/.ftr) and rebuilding the masks (createIbMasks.H) didn't work. The masks don't have the reference to the new IB-Geometry. I guess it's necessary to rebuild the mesh or at least the IB-Patch. Is this possible with an fvMesh or do I need to use a dynamicFvMesh?

Any pointer in the right direction is appreciated.

Best regards,
