 August 18, 2007, 21:26 How to specify the mesh moving mode in CFX #1 Jemy Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I want to simulate a rigid section oscillating in air with sinosoidal heaving or pitch displacement.I have successfully deal with problem in my self-developed code for easy mesh generated case through ALE.But now I want to carry it out in CFX, since I can obtain mesh with good quility.However, I donot know how to define the moving mode of the mesh.In my opinion, there is no need to repeatly form mesh at each time step, since I can use an oscillating coordinate system with the mesh rigidly fixed with it. Anyway,I donot know how to deal with the mesh,also a tutorial about simulation for rigid oscillating section is very much appreciated. Regards

For body motions [0,0,a*Sin(omega*t)] : Define all inlets & outlets as openings with cartesian velocity components [0,0,-a*omega*Cos(omega*t)]. Allow bouyancy & define gravity as [0,0,a*(omega^2)*Sin(omega*t)].

For rigid body vertical motion, it maybe easy to understand your implementation.While,how to deal with the torsional motion of the rigid body. All the best. Jemy
