Dynamic Mesh
hi everyone

I have to simulate sea bed undulations under waves with OpenFOAM.
The sea bed (bottom boundary) needs to be updated according to the flow solution.
I do not have any idea on how to get started. Is there any tutorial or guideline on how to implement a dynamic boundary?

There is a Chalmers tutorial on dynamic mesh refinement.
Just google it

It seems like there are lots of tutorials from Chalmers.
I tried some of those and i think they are really good.
I have a question though:

it seems like moving mesh cases dont support parallel running. is that true?

This is true and I too am facing this problem.
