How to get it with UDF of fluent. thanks

CFD is basically BVP(Boundary Value Problem). 'WALL' means boundary. So, how can BOUNDARY be changed to INTERIOR ? Sincerely, Jinwook

From the T=t0 to T=t1, there is no flow because the valve is closed. Then, I guess that your interest should be focused on the flow field from T=t1. Then, generated the mesh without valve if valve is entirely removed from the chamber. Or generate the mesh including the valve for open position if the valve is still in the chamber, and let it as 'SOLID'. And, finaly you can simulate the flow field from the T=t1 with initial condition of 'REST' everywhere. Sincerely, Jinwook

The better way for you would be define an interface between two surfaces. This will allow the flow of fluid across the zones. If you dont want to allow the flow across this zones at time t1 (N time step) go to solve--->Execute Command Enter the time step corresponding to required time. Enter the text command as /define/grid-interfaces/delete "interface-name" This will delete the interface and would not allow the flow. Hope this helps Bipin
