Simulating Oil splashed by timing belt in StarCCM+
 
Hi,

I want to simulate the oil splashed by the timing belt.
Based on my limited knowledge i have two ways to simulate it.

1. to model each section of chain as one part and define the motion or each section.
2. generate 4-5 sets of meshes (based on time-step and speed) and cycle between them to simulate the belt motion.

Now, for the first part it will be a lot of per-processing to define the motion for each section of chain.
for the second case i need some tips/script to cycle between the meshes to get correct momentum for the chain motion.
