Updating meshes on deforming domains

Enter "south america" and "chess" and you'll get back words like "checkuador".

For each code we give a brief description of the problem solved and provide a link to the detailed documentation.

We are happy to let you have driver codes before the documentation is complete.

Such codes usually need a bit of tidying to make them acceptable for "general release", but they are fully functional.

Elements with poor mesh qualities (also, inverted elements) often occur during mesh generation [3], mesh deformation [4, 5], and mesh optimization [5].

Researchers have proposed many mesh quality improvements and untangling algorithms to solve these problems [5–9].

I am trying to simulate a model in FLUENT that the geometry shape is varying by time.

I was wondering can I generate different geometry/mesh each time step and subsequently replace the new mesh each time steps?

Then go to the geometry, draw a rectangle, lets say 10 mm wide/long 2 mm height, go lower down and find the Rectangle "layer tab" and open it, add 0.2 .. Jump to the material node, add two materials, lets say Built in Aluminium and leave the default for all domains, then add "air" and select the domain 2 in the middle.

Leave the ALE physics for the moment and open the Solid physics to be shure it applies only to the top and bottom domains and add a fixed BC condition and select the short edges left and right of the top and bottom plates.
