Dynamic mesh with Symmetry BC?

      I'm simulating a 3D fluid structure interaction using a dynamic mesh. I'd like to limit the computational cost by using the symmetry boundary condition. The problem is that this condition would divide the rigid moving body in half.


      Is it possible to use symmetry condition in this case? If so, How can I handle the symmetry plane with the moving deforming mesh? Or better, Which is the correct set up of the dynamic zone on the symmetry plane? Is any similar example available online?


      Thanks,

      Landon

      Hello Yes, you should be able to use invoke 'Symmetry' in your model. You should be able to include this symmetry plane as a deforming zone.
