Dear all,
I'm trying to implement a dynamic mesh deformation depending of the flow solution. For example: a wall has to be deformed depending of a variable (coming from the flow solution) so that its faces/points move from the variable quantity in the local normal direction. In a way, it is similar to a deposition process.

After a short literature review, I've found that there is no explicit procedure to do so. And I'm actually a bit confused. In OF 2.1, there are many class in dynamicFvMesh to change the mesh but not any thing clear for a free deforming mesh.

I've found an "example" through the Free-rising air bubble :
There is also the case of the stress foam : However, the solver are from OF 1.6 and after watching the code, it seems that many things have changed in OF 2.1. For the original source code of OF 1.5 solvers :

From your point of view, do you think that my "code" has to be fully included in my solver or does it have to be in my case folder (constant/dynamicMeshDict).

Do you have any experience that might help me ?

Thx in advance.
