 January 7, 2015, 17:47 Questions about 2D dynamic meshing #1 New Member   Anonymous Join Date: Jan 2015 Location: India Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 I am an undergrad student and am new to CFD softwares. I need to simulate a simple case in which there is a small oscilating solid block inside a rectangular domain (Please refer to the picture below). I am using GAMBIT 2.4 for geometry and meshing and FLUENT 6.3 for simulation. dynaic mesh 2d.jpg I know that dynamic meshing needs to be done. I have the following questions. 1) While meshing in GAMBIT, do I need to do something different for dynamic meshing or can I just use the standard Triangular mesh? 2) In FLUENT, do I need to specify both "rigid body" for the block and "deforming" for the interior or just one would do? Thanks in advance

Don´t define the default interior as deforming. It should work.

Please, could you visit my threads and see if you could help me too?
