Dear all,

Is there a practical guideline to setup an OpenFOAM case with moving meshes including topology changes? To setup a case without topoly change such as an oscillating cylinder or local movement of a boat is not a proble. But when the displacement is large, the topology has to be changed. There are methods of Attached/detached or Layer-Addition, but all the information are general. In the Foam-Extention, there is Immeresed Boundary Method, but is not parallelised and I heard that there is not a short term plan to do that. It would be great to introduce me if there is any documentations.

Thanks in advance,
