Default dynamic mesh on a hexa grid

Posts: n/a
Hi Everyone

I am trying to simulate motion of a ship using dynamic mesh feature. The domain has been discretized using hexa mesh.

Mesh smoothness on all shapes have been activated using following text command-


The problem I am facing is that, the above text command doesn't takes care of mesh smoothness on the plane of symmetry, though it ensures smooth internal volume mesh.

Mesh on the plane of symmetry :

Mesh on an internal plane parallel to the plane of symmetry:

Please help.

i wouln't work with smooth. Thus you have an hex grid, so I would use the layering feature. it is quite simple.

In my case the moving grid is translating as well as rotating. How do I implement layering feature.

the layering feature is available under define/dynamic mesh/parameters enable the layering option under mesh method.

for the rotatition motion, I don't know exactly how is exactly your geometry, but I assume you can work with sliding mesh
