I'm currently looking inside the pimpleDyMFoam solver.
I try to figure out where the mesh phi is calculated.

I figured out, that the new positions of the mesh points is calculated by solving "laplace(diffusion, cellDisplacement)
But as far as i get it there are only the new points of the mesh calculated, right?

But where is the mesh-phi calculated (which i need to get the relative fluxes)...

thanks in advance,

If anyone is interested:

I found it in fvMesh.C movePoints(...)

I ham having the same query, mesh phi is calculated in volContinuity.H and apparently pipleDyMFoam does not have that header included in its source code. please post if you have figured out why it is so
