icoDyMFoam or ...
 
1 Attachment(s)
hi

I want to solve this problem ( see picture please ) .two blades oscillate with different frequencies. I searched about

1)angularOscillatingDisplacement
2)Moving Mesh
3)MRFSimpleFoam
4)icoDyMFoam
5)....

please help me !!. my main question : what's correct strategy for this case ?(solver-meshing-BC)

Does each blade move at a different angular velocity? If the move at the same velocity and direction (and these don't change in time), MRFSimpleFoam should work (as simple is steady state). If you are running 2.1.x, have a look at the propeller case for pimpleDyMFoam for some inspiration, especially if the blades move at different velocities.

Thanks . yes , blades move at different angular velocity , I will check your suggestion.

Mesh...
 
I check it . but I have new problem with mesh !. I use gambit , I defined blades as a wall but when I converted them to foam (fluentmeshtofoam) they didnt appear in boundary Dic.

blades are edge ! does my mesh need that I change blades to surface ?
