Sliding Mesh theory
Hi all, I am using a new software called ICEM, and I need to set up a sliding mesh to study the flow over a turbine rotor can any body help?:)

Re: Sliding Mesh theory
Dear Bear Grills,

You just need to create an interface between the zones which you want to maintain as stationary and moving respectively. This can be accomplished in any meshing tool including ICEM. When importing to a CFD solver assign the interface as "interface". And select multiple frame reference model for the sliding zone [define translation or rotational motion (rigid body motion)] which you are interested to rotate or slide. Keep the other zone as stationary. I hope it helps. Well I have implemented it successfully using both Fluent and CCM+.
