Hi
Can OpenFoam handle moving mesh?

If yes, please show me its manual and guide about moving mesh and examples of that.

All the Best

Hello Mohammad,

OpenFOAM can definitely handle moving meshes, but the functionality has not been well documented in the user manual. Your best sources of information are:
  1. The tutorial cases for moving mesh solvers: anything *DyMFoam
  2. The documentation in the dynamicFvMesh and topoChangerFvMesh classes
  3. ADVANCED: The mesh modifiers in dynamicMesh. These are several fundamental mesh changes that can be added to an polyMesh/fvMesh. You will need to do some programming to get exactly the type of motion you want.
Good luck!

Too much thanks,
But I am very new to OpenFoam. Can you provide me the documentation about moving mesh?

Best Regards

There isn't much officially besides the source code. This paper is a good place to start; otherwise you'll need to search the web for work others have done.
