Why are you running 3d, and how did you choose the min and max sizes in the Mesh Methods panel?.September 28, 2020 at 1:26 pmkoshurkoorSubscriberI used the default values for min and max from the 'mesh length scale' box. I have, however, tried the original default parameters too. nMy udf won't work on 2D. I am using the node motion based on simple beam deflection as the base for the oscillation in the trailing edge. nThe only way i could make it work is by creating a 3D, while meshing - for the thickness, i choose the number of divisions = 1, and use the faces as symmetry to be able to mimic the 2D flow in the solver. I tried using periodic boundary conditions too. nSeptember 28, 2020 at 2:24 pmkoshurkoorSubscriberI have tried several values of remeshing parameters and believe thats why i am getting negative cell volume. How do i choose the right values? nSeptember 28, 2020 at 3:44 pmRobAnsys EmployeeHave a look at the tutorials, but you'll need something around the size of the cells in the region of the moving blade. nOctober 11, 2020 at 2:51 pmOctober 12, 2020 at 11:08 amRobAnsys EmployeeRedisplay using orthographic projection (there's an icon around the graphics window).nOctober 12, 2020 at 4:42 pmOctober 13, 2020 at 2:48 pmRobAnsys EmployeeIt'll be linked to the mesh motion, check the zone is set to move and not the outer boundary. nOctober 18, 2020 at 5:39 amkoshurkoorSubscriberI choose the top and bottom surfaces as stationary so that the nodes of that zone are excluded, but that really didn't help. The mesh still collapses.nThere are no tutorials available on sinusoidal motion using DEFINE_GRID_MOTION. I have tried all other logical ways to improve this. nOctober 19, 2020 at 10:58 amRobAnsys EmployeeThe problem is with the mesh motion & settings: the tutorials/videos cover the motion, the shape of that motion is irrelevant. nOctober 26, 2020 at 6:06 amkoshurkoorSubscriberUnfortunately, there is only one example even in the latest manual, the one with cantilever beam, and that is not enough to learn from. I'm having hard time fixing this mesh motion. I created a smaller domain, tried to define zones, move it as a zone as well. None of that fixed this kind of problem. It does not have to do with the setting, but definitely the mesh motion. Youtube covers mostly cgmotion which is not relevant to my case as my equations are much more complex in nature and can be imitated by define_grid_motion only. It maybe that something else needs to be added to the udf to make it work. nViewing 12 reply threads
