Hi, did you solve that problem? I am also confusing about that. I guess whether we can put that in the boundary file. I tried to put that in dynamicfvmesh file and it does't work. Or if we need to create a dict file and then use it...

Hi All

Has anyone made progress with the layerAdditionRemoval? All I get on the internet is the same that cctv get.

What should the input dictionary look like?
How should the dynamicMesh solver be called? via mesh.update()?
How do you couple a solver to this utility?

I have seen output examples of this utility (, but have not found any examples of how to implement it.

Another site stating basically the same thing but are only slides:

Any help or guidance will be greatly appriciated. Thank you
