moving mesh problem, simulating a floating plate
I want to model a floating plate at the surface of a fluid.
the geometry is a rectangular that its west boundary condition is U=cte.
I have some questions:
1.Should I use of the interDyMFoam, floatingObject tutorial?
2.If yes, how should I modify the dynamicMeshDict to achieve my purpose?
3.Is it necessary that my model has an atmosphere above it or not?
any hint will be appreciated
thanks a lot,
It really depends on what you're trying to simulate!
From your description, I can't figure out why and how the plate is over the surface in the first place... in fact, my first impulse was to say that the very first tutorial of the OpenFOAM User Guide was good enough :rolleyes:
So the questions back to you are:
If I want to speak in details, I want simulate a floating rectangular over a fluid. in the fluid I have natural convection and the purpose is the velocity of floating object in my geometry.
the object is floating in a way that we can assume it hasn't any vertical motion.
the object has a limited length, about a quarter of surface length.
I think the moving cone tutorial has some similarity with my model. with this difference that the object in this example has a velocity.
in other word I first want to simulate a geometry that has an inlet velocity and then I'll combine the buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam whit a solver that it can simulate my problem.
I honestly don't know what to suggest to you. But what I do know is that:
