      how to simulate the piston cylinder arrangement of gamma type stirling engine in ansys fluent.


      Can the six dof solver can be used for this purpose??


      how to provide the effect of connecting rod and flywheel without drawing them.

      Hello rshukla786.  Here in the Chapter 11 of Fluent Theory Guide have some informations about mesh process. I also linked the Fluent Theory Guide site.

      thnx @ Jose Mantovani but stirling engine doesn't involve with combustion its different from IC engine. Beacuse of heating and cooling of gas periodic motion is there in Stirling engine. Inertia of flywheel plays the major role in this motion.

      Something very simplistic but might help you:

      in my case I can't give manual profile motion to piston as it is caused by the fluid thrust. so please how to analyse the motion due to fluid thrust.
