 June 10, 2010, 00:50 6DOF with floating body bounce back. #1 Senior Member   Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 225 Rep Power: 11 Good day everyone, I'm trying to model a floating body (similar to the one in 6DOF Fluent tutorial), however at some point the floating body is suppose to "bounce off" or rather stay in rest position on the floor. I'm not interested in fluid-structure interaction analysis, my aim is to first drop a body on the floor then induce its movement with water blow. Rigid body description is fine enough. My trouble occurs when body is suppose to hit the floor. Instead of staying at rest the body contour is crossing the floor line with mesh cells around the body intersecting the domain and going off the domain, which results with Fluent error of "negative volume cells". Does anyone had similar problem or can help me tackle the problem? Thanks a lot. Last edited by paka; June 10, 2010 at 02:33.

I use a udf to limit the movement of body in Y coordinate. it just can heave(up and down). But when it run, pressure in domain increase very much. I solve this problem with 6dof, too but i can not get result from it. You solve this problem before, could you help me? thanks in advance.. elahe

I would advise, go through tutorial carefully and make sure you understand EVERYTHING about the model/case. Check boundary condition, that's usually what people tend to make mistakes. Also make sure about the center of gravity of your body. Mesh might play also an important role. There are plenty of variables. Read carefully 6DOF documentation, carefully search documentation, not always all the information is included in particular section. Make sure there no limitations to the 6DOF model which possibly you might be violating. At this moment this is all I can advise to you. Best! Krystian
