 May 12, 1999, 03:58 Grid regeneration in Fluent 5.0 #1 Choeng-Ryul, Choi Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I am currently calculating a flow in a heart valve. The flow is considered unsteady, turbulent(k-e model), 3d, compressible(perfect gas law). In inlet, mass flow rate is the function of time. The heart valve(plate) located in flow field(duct) moves(from close to open or from open to close)periodically with time by force actived to valve(plate). I want to regenerate mesh(grid) with time. How can i do it? or what is other method? I needs help. Thank you.

Like the computer animation, you do it one at a time for each time step. (2). So, at any time step, when you re-position the valve, you can create a brand new mesh. (3). But in reality, the code must be able to handle the solutions at two different time steps on two different meshes. In other words, the solution is no longer a function of time only. The boundary conditions are also re-located at different places. This makes the problem of moving boundary difficult to handle. (4). You need to know whether the code you are using can handle this type of problems or not. You may want to contact the code vendor first to find out the answer to this problem. (5). I really hope that you are dealing with a simulated flow through a moving valve problem and the related 3-D animation. ( There is no law against that , right? just a joke! )

 May 13, 1999, 19:59 Re: Grid regeneration in Fluent 5.0 #8 Sung-Eun Kim Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Choeng-Ryul, FLUENT 4.5 has a moving/deforming mesh capability. It employs a method that is similar to the ones used in other commercial codes. There's a tutorial problem in the manual. And, moving/deforming mesh is coming soon in FLUENT 5+. We are making a fast progress, and I believe you will like it when it gets delivered. It's not a good idea to sell something we don't have right now. But I can tell you one thing. With the moving/deforming mesh in FLUENT 5+, you won't need to worry about the mesh. The code will take all the mesh motion for you.
