Scabbard is on a distinguished road
Dear Foamers,

I just start to learn how to use the SixDoFRigidBodyMotion to solve a self oscillating cylinder case. I let the cylinder can oscillating in transverse side without rotation. However during the simulation, the cylinder keeping moving on one side, even I set 2 spring to restrain it.

Here is the error

For the courant number, is keep stable in the first 13s around 1, then it keep increasing

Could you give me some recommendations to solve this problem? Thank you so much for you help.

Best regards,

Well, once your Courant number is above 1, it is possible that your simulation starts to diverge, so you should make sure it always keeps below 1. I am not sure which solver you use, but if it is pimpleDyMFoam you can probably use a variable time step that fulfills this Courant no. condition all the time using and using

Code:
maxCo 1;
runTimeModifiable true;
in your controlDict. You may even want to lower your maxCo a bit.

Regards,
Tom
