Noob question:

I'm tasked with the turbulent flow simulation of a 2-D pitching flat plate (transient pitch up-down maneuver) - before I rack my brain with trying to get dynamic meshing working, is there a solver in OpenFOAM which will let me do this using an intertial reference frame???

Thanks for any advice...

Is it something like this you want to do?

thanks for the reply!

Hmm I don't have the OF1.5 extend version installed - is it the same as the OF1.5-dev? I have OF1.6 installed. Where can I get the version that you're using?

From the name of the tutorial case file I gather it might be quite what I need...however mine is a flat plate with rounded edges and not a block. But anyway, where can I get this version of OF because that tutorial isn't in 1.6.

However what I really wanted to know was whether there was a rotating reference frame solver that would do the job without having to deal with mesh motion. I know of MRFsimpleFoam but that is a steady state solver. Then, there is GGI but I don't know how to get that working and can't find any documentation on it.

correct extend is the DEV-version
http://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefor...nd/trunk/Core/

and you found out what Dev and Git(OF made by OpenCFD) distinguishes
Dev has more Tutorials and features like GGI, viscoelastic ...

when Hrv starts 1.6-dev these capabilaties will come to 1.6 but that is future.

For anyone reading this, I ended up getting it done by using the GGI feature in 1.5-dev which was quite easy in the end.

However I'm still interested in the non-inertial reference frame approach for a transient solution - just so that I can justify the approach to use GGI. Can anyone point me in the right direction for information on how one might apply this approach?

I can see how there might be some difficulty in handling the far-field boundary condition due to the rotation...
