Train - Simulation Moving Meshes
Hey Guys,

i'm a real OpenFoam newbie, working on 1.5-dev.

My first objective is to simulate 2 Cylinders - one static, the other one moves inside with constant velocity on the x-axis.

Has anybody some ideas to achieve this? A tutorial (Link!) would be great or even some thoughts of you!

Thx pippi

Best Regards,

looks nice, but i don't have any rotations within my mesh..

just movement in cartesian coordinates..

I figured out Sliding Interfaces would be suitable but i have no idea to set up such an case..
