 March 28, 2001, 06:22 Can I define grids motion as a time functions #1 Darcy Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all The complete title is 'Can I define grids motion as a time functions in a command file?' In CFX-4, I think it not a easy job to use USRGRD for the definition of grids motion. I saw the desk calculator mode in command file today.I wondered if it can help me define grids motion to be a time function immediately in command file. To give my comcept, I give the commmand file codes below: >>GRID MOTION PARAMETERS #CALC ALPHA = OMEGAT ** 2.0 / (4.0 * 3.41592); OMEGA = ALPHA * TIME; #ENDCALC /* THE VARIABLE 'TIME' IS TIME VALUE OF TRANSIENT FLOW FIELD */ BLOCK NAMES 'BLOCK-NUMBER-1','BLOCK-NUMBER-2' POSITION OF MATION AXIS 3 * 0.0 DIRCETION VECTOR OF MOTION AXIS -1.0 0.0 0.0 ROTATION SPEED #OMEGA >>END I make grids 'BLOCK-NUMBER-1' and 'BLOCK-NUMBER-2' rotate about the axis defined by (0,0,0) and (-1,0,0). The rotation speed is a linear time function. The rotation speed is 0 at t = 0 and OMEGAT when t = T. What's more the rotation acceleration is constant. Is it all right? If it's not, pls. tell me what is not correct. Thx. P.s. Is there someone tell me how to use CALL DEF('.spch.') and CALL DEF('.indc.')

I used the following code for rotation of block1 and 2 with - 3 Hz; - 360 degrees in 56 steps - total number of steps is Nstep = 672 - This makes 672/56=12 rotations - 12 rotations at 3 Hz is 4 seconds in the real world. #CALC PI = 4.0*ATAN(1.0); DEGREE = PI/180.0; FREQ = 3.0; OMEGA = 2.0 * PI * FREQ; /* rad/s */ ANGLE = 360/56; RSTEP = ANGLE * DEGREE; DT = RSTEP /((2.0*PI) * FREQ); NSTAP = 672; #ENDCALC . . . >>GRID MOTION PARAMETERS MOTION AROUND X AXIS ROTATION SPEED #OMEGA BLOCK NAMES 'BLOCK1' 'BLOCK2' >>TRANSIENT PARAMETERS :>FIXED TIME STEPPING TIME STEPS #NSTAP * #DT Hope this helps, Gert-Jan

Additionally I gave a wrong title. This time I give a new title as 'Can I define the speed of grid motion as a time function in command file' I tried yesterday and failed to archive my goal. I hope somebody can tell me if it is possible. Darcy

You have to do this in USRGRD which is not too difficult, depending on your geometry, but you have to invest some time in it. Gert-Jan
