Hello,
I'm pretty new at OpenFoam/foam-extend. So, I hope someone can help me with my problem.

Right now, I'm trying to simulate a gear pump using immersed boundary method for the rotating gears.

So far, I installed the the immersed boundary methodes in to foam-extend-3.1, as described at Extend-bazaar/Toolkits/ImmersedBoundary at openfoamwiki.net.
It workes fine and I found some tutorials, I can use for my simulation.

But all tutorials are static. That means, the immersed boundary object is not moving at all.
Which means, I have no clue, how to make the gears rotate.

I hope some one can help me.

Thanks,
RobertG

Hi Robert

Has there been any update?

I'm currently working on a similar problem. I'm using the version 3.2 extended, since the immersed boundary method has been updated.
