Default Way to check the mesh deformation in CFX

Hi All,

I am running an unsteady simulation right now. After imported the modeshape file into CFX, I would like to find a way to see if the blade is vibrating as my modeshape file described, which means I want to see the mesh motion during the simulation. Is there any way to check that? Should I go to .res file or in .cfx file?

Thank you all in advance!

Look out for variables like "Mesh Displacement" and "Total Mesh Displacement", you can see those in post but can also use monitor values, e.g. max(Total Mesh Displacement) and see if the plot looks like a sine or cosine function.

cfx, dynamic mesh, mesh displacement, mesh motion
