How to create a internal gate?

Hi members,

I am a new FOSSEE user and just started using openFOAM. I am simulating LCPC box test for fresh concrete. I did my mesh using blockMesh and recently got stuck on how to create a gate, so that when i start the simulation the gate opens allowing the concrete flow in the uni-direction.
Thanks in advance!!

Hi,
OpenFOAM is not an animation software which will show you the automated movement of your gate. You can analyze the motion of concrete. I suggest you refer to the damBreak tutorial of interFoam solver for your case. Make an inlet patch. There is no need for your gate to open and close.
