Dynamic Mesh - FLUENT 6.3
Hy everybody, I want to simulate a simple geometry using dynamic mesh and I would like to know if FLUENT is capable of solving it.

For example, I want to simulate a straigth edge deforming in a transient way to an arc stationary, the edge doesn't move inside the domain.

Does any one have an idea? UDF, maybe??

Re: Dynamic Mesh - FLUENT 6.3

I have little experience with Dynamic Mesh in FLUENT, however, I think you can simulate the deforming edge using either DEFINE_GRID_MOTION or DEFINE_GEOM. The UDF manual gives an example of a bending cantilever using DEFINE_GRID_MOTION which is similar to your problem.

Thanks NRD, I found it on the UDF manual and I will do it and I think that is similar to my problem...
