moveMesh vs. moveDynamicMesh
Dear Foamers,

I am running OF-2.1 and I noticed that there is the possibility to choose either the command moveMesh or the command moveDynamicMesh.

Which are the differences?

Thanks a lot,

I believe that 'moveMesh' is used for point motion applications like smoothing or boundary motion. 'moveDynamicMesh' supports more complicated operations such as connectivity changes in addition to point motion operations.
