Dear experts,

I am new with CFD, and wanted your help in the following:
I want to simulate a flow through an aortic valve, and in particular, want (somehow) to make the two leaflets move (i.e.-open and close) such that when they are closed, no back flow will occur.

Is this even possible in Fluent? Can this be done by using dynamic mesh? As far as I understand, the contact of two solids is a complicated problem in CFD, and I will be glad to receive some advice on how to tackle it using Ansys.

Thanks in advance!
