moving volume

    • ft19


      I would like to move my volume from one position to another position. for example:I have an holed tube and I want to obtain a non-holed tube. i want to design all in 3D in fluent. is it possible?

      Moving this to the Fluid Dynamics Category so that it might get more traction.

      Hello ft19,

      Good Day!

      We can change the position of fluid volume from one location to another location. we use dynamic mesh approach for this. But your requirement is not changing the position, it's altogether changing the shape of the domain which is not possible. You can move the inner circular surface to much closer but it can not be collide and form a solid cylinder.

      For dynamic meshing, we have many tutorials in our youtube channel. Please go through the following links for few examples.

      How is the tube being compressed? is due to external pressure? can you provide more description of your case?
