Combination of moving mesh and dynamic mesh

    • Lee


              I encountered a problem when I used the UDF “DEFINE_CG_MOTION” and “DEFINE_ZONE_MOTION”, the warning message below popped up during simulation: Warning: incompatible interaction between moving mesh and dynamic mesh model.

      Model and settings description:

      (1) As shown in Figure 1, the whole model consists of 3 fluid zone: fluid_1, fluid_2 and fluid_3, each zone is connected with interface. Fluid_2, fluid_3 and wall_bot_f1 are moving with a velocity v, now, I use “DEFINE_CG_MOTION” to control the motion of moving face, and “DEFINE_ZONE_MOTION” for fluid_2 and fluid_3.

      (2) Interface settings: Interface_1: wall_bot_f1 and wall_top_f2;

      Interface_2: wall_bot_f2 and wall_top_f3;

      (3) Dynamic mesh settings:

      Deforming: wall_f1

      Rigid body: wall bot_f1;

      Rigid body: Interface_1;

      Rigid body: Interface_1-non-overlapping;

      Although the simulation can run normally, I am curious about this problem, what makes this happen? Does this problem influence the simulation result? How to solve it?

      I need your help and advice, thanks.

      Can you provide more context as to why you are using CG_Motion for one and ZONE_Motion for the others?

        Hi, Federico,

                There are two reasons:

        1.If I use CG_MOTION for fluid_2 and fluid_3, too much surfaces I must set as rigid body in dynamic mesh, as shown in Figure 2;

        2."Warning: multiple subdivision required on zone 23. Subdivide using Constant Ratio"

        and "negative volume" error will pop up, as shown in Figure 3.
