ashkan is on a distinguished road
Hi All,
I would like to simulate two connected bodies (as in the image) in OpenFOAM. Here, the cylindrical part is attached to the bluff body and allowed to rotate freely at pivot point, where the pivot points move with the bluff body (both bodies move due to wave force acting on them).

I was wondering if it is doable with openfoam and would appreciate any help and how to do such simulation.

Many thanks in advance
