I am applying a sliding mesh that contains a rotating wing inside of a larger stationary zone. Here is a top view of the geometry from the ANSYS meshing tool showing the original position. Hopefully, the image has been uploaded.


In ANSYS FLUENT, when I preview the mesh it obviously moves the sliding mesh to a new position. Do I need to return it to the original position before running the calculation? And if so, how do I do that?

Thank you

You can' really restore the position of mesh once it's been moved. Always remeber to save before you preview or runn the simulation, then you can reload to initial state.

OK, that is unfortunate. I will keep that in mind for the future.
