 November 21, 2013, 06:41 ::: Constant mesh motion ? #1 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2012 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 4 Hi everyone, I have a mesh motion problem in my code. Simply, I want to move all points in my domain (except points at outlet) with the same velocity in x-direction defined at inlet. I want to preserve the initial cell sizes (except the cells neighbouring outlet patch) that I give at start. Is it possible to achieve this with laplaceFaceDecomposition with just adjusting the diffusivity function? as the current code is based on this for now and it also works in parallel. Any comments are very much appreciated. Best, A very simple drawing would be as given below o: outlet vertice i: inlet vertice |: internal vertices o______|__|__|__|__i t=0 o_____|__|__|__|__i t=1 o___|__|__|__|__i t=2 o____|__|__|__|__i t=3 ...

Then I would have have (10+1)^2=121 points at the inlet patch and (12+1)*(10+1)^2=1573 points in total, but when I check motionU file, in the internal field I have 6713 data points and at the inlet 216 data points? what do we mean by tetPointVectorField so that I have more data points than the actual total number of points? Thanks Best
