cg motion-udf-dynamic mesh
I wrote a simple UDF code for describing pitching motion of a
projectile as below:

But when I wanted to create dynamic mesh zone, Fluent reports:
"Warning: incorrect cg motion UDF pitching on zone 10 (assuming no motion)"
I confused, I searched udf manual and cfd online forums but I couldn't
find the reason of problem.
If someone know the solution please help me.

Hi dear Amir
I think that the using udf for your case, is very short!
Too, i think that You must define Thered in udf.

Hi dear Spring
Whould you please explain more?

There is one example in UDF manual about one directional motion that use Thread for define moving wall in fluent

I think that you must have something else in your UDF that describes the motion/position of other faces/boundaries in your domain. While you have moving/dynamic face/boundary the motion of mesh attached to this face affects the meshes attached to other faces/boundaries.

I suggest you have a close look at the tutorial titled 'Using a UDF to Control the Dynamic Mesh of a Flexible Oscillating Membrane'.

Hi Mr omidvar
I had same problem like you, and i found it depends on your fluent version, i guess you use fluent x64, if you use from x86/x32 it will solve.

hi omidvar,
if you describe your case ,
maybe i could help you,
what is your case and what do you want ???
what is your mesh zone setup??
i think you have a problem in dynamic mesh setup
