 May 25, 2006, 14:22 Moving wall #1 skd Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I'm going to make a wall move in fluent and I'm not sure which method I should use. I have thought of two methods: 1) Create a UDF using DEFINE_GRID_MOTION and then hooke it to the right zone in the dyn.mesh zones panel. The motion will then be specified with the x and y displacements, 2)Create a UDF using DEFINE_PROFILE and then hooke it into the wall velocity section in the b.c panel. The motion will then be specified with its x- and y velocity. -Are there any differences in performence between these two methods? -I know you can loop over the nodes in method 1, but can you do that with method 2? or is only a face loop possible here? -Are there any differences in using a face loop compared to a node loop if the entire wall is set to have the same displacement/velocity? Please help me with this! Thanks in advance! skd

You should use a DEFINE_CG_MOTION macro to make your wall move and use a dynamic mesh. Let me know if you succeed in implementing a dynamic mesh because I've got big troubles in my model (negative cell volumes are detected after a few iterations). Thanks.

 June 8, 2006, 05:25 Re: Moving wall #7 skd Guest   Posts: n/a HI, I have managed to implement a moving wall using a define_grid_motion macro. I have also used the define_cg_motin macro to move some other things. It is very important that you have adjusted the dynamic mesh parameters correct. And it requires a very small time step size! For one of the moving things my time step is 1e-5 and it only works with the coupled implicitt solver, but I don't know why. Hope this gives you some idea for what you can check! You should use remeshing and smoothing,but you probably know that skd
