Modify mesh runtime
Hi
I'm simulating a evolutive case. My initial domain is a rectangle 2d and the shape of the bottom is a gaussian. At each temporal step the bottom modify its shape, How can I modify the mesh quickly at each time step? Thanks 
Simple. Use the meshmotion solver to move points at each time step. Take a look at icoDyMFoam and its multiple variants.

thanks
Uhm the coordinates of new point are calculated with matlab. I can use icoDyMFoam? 
I don't see why not. I would write a function in C++ that replicates the matlab code to define boundary pointpositions, and pass that into the meshmotion solver to let it deal with internal ones. There's a ton of codesnippets in the forum that deal with this situation.

I can use it with simpleFoam?

I don't understand well how work it. In my problem matlab simulate a process and inside it (for cycle) I call OpenFoam to calculate shear stress, the new shape of the bottom is result of matlab script, I would modify old vertex mesh into the new one, and recalculate the new shear stress with openfoam etc...

hi
I'm using simpleFoam for my simulation couple with a matlab script. I do a simulation with openfoam and I use its result for matlab script that update the geometry. How can I modify my mesh without remeshing to start a new simulation? I use a fluent mesh. It is a evolutive simulation coupled with matlab, and during the simulation change only the bottom shape. Thanks 
Dear Daniele,
As far as I've realized, you've written a script in Linux which calls OpenFOAM. I'm gonna do a similar job. Actually, I'm supposed to write an algorithm in C++ or Matlab which one part of it deals with CFD calculations in which it needs to call OpenFOAM. I was wondering if you could please provide me a sample code/script (in any language) which calls OpenFOAM or a tutorial which might help me sort out the way of calling OpenFOAM. Cheers, Sina 
Hi
What kind of command i must use to update my geometry. My situation is this: 1) Matlab script > new bottom geometry 2) Update OpenFoam mesh with new bottom 3)OpenFoam simulation> result go to matlab loop So Can i update OpenFoam mesh? Matlab script give me new vertex position of the mesh bottom. Help me! Daniele
