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.

Dynamic Mesh Handling in OpenFOAM

Object-oriented dynamic mesh engine has been built up from ground-up in OpenFOAM, a C++ object-oriented library for numerical simulations in continuum mechanics, with emphasis given on polyhedral cell support in mesh analysis and discretisation, vertex-based automatic mesh motion techniques and hierarchical design of topology morphing engine.

Simulating Aerodynanics of a Moving Body Specified by Immersed Boundaries on Dynamically Adaptive Unstructured Meshes

An integrated technology is developed for the numerical simulation of the aerodynamics of moving bodies described by the immersed body method on unstructured meshes that enables retaining the original grid topology and does not incur a significant increase in computational costs.

Dynamic Mesh Handling in OpenFOAM Applied to Fluid-Structure Interaction Simulations

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.

Moving Meshes to Fit Large Deformations Based on Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT)

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.
