micro valve simulation
 
My name is Luis López. I am doing my final project at University. It is about a simulation of a microvalve in a CD (more or less like this one: http://www.reactivereports.com/18/18_4.html). I should be grateful if you could send me information about how to do simulations with OpenFoam. Specially, about how to introduce a reference sistem as turning point in relation with the referene sistem of the microvalve and the control with the angular velocity.
I would very much appreciate an early response or some information related with my project.

Did you already download the sources, unzip and than read OpenFOAM-1.5.x/doc/Guides-a4/UserGuide.pdf ??
This is of help to see the concept and usage of OpenFOAM.

thanks
I looked but I can not find how to simulate the rotation of a cd with respect to the micro valve
