OpenFOAM can do calcualtion with dynamic mesh, however, just according to its tutorial, it is difficult to get the crucial tips of using dynamic mesh models. My problem is how to control the mesh motion that depends on time, which means that the velocity of the mesh nodes will change with time. Does someone could give me some suggestion or suggest a relative tutorial of OpenFOAM (version 1.5 or 1.6)? Thanks in advance!

Hi!
The magic keyword is "timeVaryingUniformFiedValue". For example have a look at Transient boundary conditions.
