Default Moving Boundary for Piston Dynamics
Posts: n/a
Hi CFX users!

I am trying to simulate dynamic characteristics of simple piston. This model is composed of only 3 surfaces, top, bottom, and side, resulting in 1 volume. When the moving part, bottom surface, moves upward, the inside gas will be compressed. Here, I'd like to solve this problem by using transient analysis.

To solve this problem, I set the wall velocity in wall boundary condition on the bottom surface. I, however, cannot get the result. Of course, there is no movement of the bottom surface. I have a warning as follows:

Initial conditions have been defined both globally and for Domain 'Air'. The values defined on the domain will be used by the flow solver.

Do I need to do something for this simple (?) simulation?

Dear Se-Hee,

If the domain is deforming, you must active MESH MOTION; otherwise, the domain remains fixed..

Did you do that?

Then, you must setup the MESH MOTION at the bottom boundary..

Check the tutorial for mesh motion..
