Hello Foamers,

I am quite new in the CFD world and learned to use some commercial soft at school but now, I'd like to run simulation for my business and cannot afford an expensive license.

I've start usinng CAELinux and some of its soft to do the job. I am still a beginner working on very basic cases.

In the end, I'd like to simulate a moving wall (this wall could be aluminium or paper or whatever) passing in front of a nozzle blowing hot air against this wall. Knowing the temperature of the air and the temperature of the wall at the beginning, it'd like to know the temperature of the wall in the end.

I'd like to compare different nozzle geometries in fact.

In your opinion, which solver is appropriated for my problem? Can chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam do the job? For now I've run simulation with simpleFoam and buoyantPimpleFoam to train myself.

As anyone done this kind of simulation? I don't think my problem is that specific, maybe someone did something pretty close to what i'd like to do.

Data :

Hot air temperature is something like 500K, wall is at 300K at the beginning.
Air is blown at 40m/s against the wall. The distance between the nozzle and the wall is something like 20mm.
The wall is moving at 20m/s in general and is a few millimeters thick.

Thanks for helping!
