 January 28, 2011, 15:40 Mesh deformation #1 New Member   morteza Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: United States Posts: 12 Rep Power: 16 I want to define a wall boundary condition which is moving and just the thing I know about its movement is the equation of motion which is y^2 + (a^2/h - h)y + x^2 + z^2 - a^2= 0 (a is a constant and h is changing with time), how can I do this ?

If the motion has any component normal to the wall (it the fluid domain gets bigger, smaller or moves) you need moving mesh. There are examples of both types that come with CFX tutorials.

The wall boundary moves in normal direction but the problem is that the velocity in y direction changes with x and z (as you can see in the equation) so I can not give an specific value for V. Could you please let me know how can I input a different velocity for each r (x^2 + y^2). I am kinda lost in those tutorials. I dont know if I have to write a code in fortran or I can write an expression directly on cfx. Help me

You will never get anywhere until you understand the basics. You should be able to do what you propose in CEL expressions in moving mesh. No need for fortran.
