Dear all,

I'm trying to simulate a solid body moving inside a fluid. I have found several tutorials of rotating solids as incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/propeller.

Nevertheless the case that I want to simulate consist in a traslational solid, I mean, a body that moves linearly at constant high velocity. As the external geometry of the control volume is variable, I need a dynamic mesh (I would like to move the obstacle, changing the mesh topology).

I use OpenFoam 2.3 version.

Does anybody have any idea of how can I simulate this?
Is there any tutorial that solves a problem similar to the one described?

Many thanks in advance!
