engineFoam - kiva tutorial
I am studying the kiva tutorial. I changed the kiva mesh to OpenFoam mesh as described in Allrun script (kivaToFoam -file otape17). Then i checked the generated documents.

I duplicated the setup with different piston space geometry and run the engineFoam solver. After that i checked the solution with paraFoam, but i could not see the piston wall movement and mesh changes as seen with original kiva tutorial.

I could not find any instructions about the dynamic mesh. There are some info in engineGeometry file, but i could not find any info about "cylinder wall" moving toward the "pistonHead wall". Which file contains these information?

Anybody ever tried this. Any idea where can i find the documentation about the engineFoam solver...
