fogl is on a distinguished road
Hello everybody,

I would like to simulate the gas leakage from cylinder to crankcase through the piston gap. I did simulate a simple gas compression with existing coldEngineFoam solver, now i would like to upgrade it with a moving piston and a expansion_space in the crankcase.

Can i use existing solvers/tools to accomplish that or should i write my own solver. Can you please give me some direction how.

Bast Regards,
