The moving-mesh unstructured Finite Volume Method (FVM) provides a capability of tackling flow simulations where the domain shape changes during the simulation. In such cases, the computational mesh needs to adapt to the time-varying shape of the domain and preserve its validity and quality. In this paper, we present a vertex-based unstructured mesh motion solver with the polyhedral cell support which calculates the internal point motion based on the prescribed motion of the boundary.

New Mesh Motion Solver for Large Deformations based on CVT
Dynamic Mesh Handling in OpenFOAM Applied to Fluid-Structure Interaction Simulations
TLDR
Features of dynamic mesh support in OpenFOAM are described, which combines a second-order Finite Volume fluid flow solver with moving mesh support coupled to a large deformation formulation of the structural mechanics equations in an updated Lagrangian form.
Automatic Mesh Motion with Topological Changes for Engine Simulation
TLDR
A new method of handling motion and topological changes in a moving-mesh Finite Volume Method (FVM), which consists of self-contained mesh topology modifiers which operate without direct ``event'' prescription and a vertex-based unstructured mesh motion solver.
Moving Meshes to Fit Large Deformations Based on Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT)
TLDR
This paper uses the so-called centroidal Voronoi tessellation (CVT) not only for mesh generation and optimization but also to develop a new mesh motion method.
NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE INTERACTION BETWEEN FLUID FLOW AND ELASTIC FLAPS OSCILLATIONS
TLDR
An in-house partitioned numerical solver is developed by using the open source C++ library OpenFOAM and predicts accurately the interaction between the complex flow structures generated by the flaps and the effect of the flapping oscillations on each other.
