it might not be the right forum, as my problem concerns mesh movement in OpenFOAM, but as it is related to FSI computation, maybe someone can help me.
I am trying to simulate a sort of cylinder-flap simulation, with OpenFOAM as fluid solver. At some point my simulation blows up. Looking at the mesh movement, just before the crash the fluid mesh messes up as you can see in the video below:
At the moment of the crash the flap is moving quite fast. The mesh doesn’t follow the movement well, it is like the trailing elements don’t move fast enough. I have always left the “default” configuration in the dynamicMeshDict file: I have tried to change the diffusivity parameter from
diffusivity quadratic inverseDistance (flap);
diffusivity inverseFaceDistance (flap);
Hoping that the mesh movement includes further elements, but it is not enough. I haven’t found much information on how to change dinamicMeshDict parameters. If someone can point me to some resources or has some hint it would be great.
