I dont know how to set the wing motion, i've created a 6DOF Body and constraint its motion to the z Axis and as I dont know how to give it a certain motion I've tried to give it a force that produces that motion. Is there a easier way? I suppose so, thank you in advance. pd: I've read the manual and specially the example of the boat but the boat moves becouse of the water and not becouse a fixed motion.

Usually the motion is driven by the motion of the car, not by fluid forces, therefore I would just apply an inlet velocity and a moving ground boundary instead of using 6DOF (which is definitely the wrong model as soon as the wing can't move according to fluid forces). __________________ We do three types of jobs here: GOOD, FAST AND CHEAP You may choose any two!

 September 6, 2012, 15:49 #7 Member   David Join Date: Aug 2012 Posts: 48 Rep Power: 6 yes, you are right i handled to do it making some tricks but now i am trying to use the Morpher as Henry Arrigo said but I'm having problems becouse the wing does not follow the position i gave it, the amplitude is different, ideas? Thank you all. pd: I dont know what you refer with moving ground boundary, as I know if i dont set the Morpher i only can give it velocity but not displacement. I will explain again what i want to do, i want to simulate a moving wing (with a prefixed movement) while it is in a moving fluid.

Here is the link of my discussion: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/sta...e-morpher.html

 September 8, 2012, 06:07 #9 Member   David Join Date: Aug 2012 Posts: 48 Rep Power: 6 Finally It was solved by using the rigid body motion and gave to it a prefixed velocity, i'll take a look at the morpher and try to discover why but it is weird. Very thank you to all of you that helped in this topic.
