Thank you for the information, it does seem to be ambitious for what the scope is. I'm already designing the system, studying it through FEA and then machining it, so Ansys included would be a lot of work.

I'm getting an early start though, as the project submition is not until next March so there is plenty of time to figure things out.

To model the piston motion, this would be through UDF ? It's modelled on solidworks and the piston stroke is correct.

If this is not feesible I'm going to use a simpler method like the one shown in the report below :

Is this a lot easier ?

It would not require UDF or dynamic meshing, as the problem is static.

Many thanks,
