 April 30, 2020, 23:56 Why do the laplacian mesh motion solvers solve for the cell centres? #1 Member   Join Date: Sep 2018 Posts: 53 Rep Power: 7 In the displacementLaplacian and velocityLaplacian motion solvers, if I'm understanding the code correctly, the motion of the boundaries (provided by the user in the pointMotion file) is interpolated onto the centres of the boundary cells. Then the laplace equation equation is solved for the displacement/velocity of the cell centres. The new position of the mesh nodes is then interpolated from the cell centres. Is this correct? If it is, why not just directly solve for the displacements of the mesh nodes? Then you don't need to interpolate.

That makes sense, thanks very much.
