Can preCICE be used with moving meshes?

What happens when the interface is moving?

It depends on what exactly is meant by “moving”. preCICE currently only supports static meshes, i.e. the mesh coordinates cannot be changed during a simulation. A dissertation in progress will introduce support for dynamic meshes. Nevertheless, also with static meshes, one can treat moving geometries and moving meshes if the respective solver uses an Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian approach.
