Provision for allowing freedom for motion for the object under study

My project for PG is on maneuverability of ship. I am using openfoam for simulation. My question which solver i should use and where in solver i should add the details of degree of freedom?

Thanks and regards

Dear Mohammed,

interFoam would be a good place to start as it has dynamicMesh capabilities as well as tutorial cases for your application. Please refer to the following tutorials for your reference (OpenFOAM V9):

  • $FOAM_TUTORIALS/multiphase/interFoam/laminar/sloshingTank2D3DoF 
  • $FOAM_TUTORIALS/multiphase/interFoam/RAS/DTCHullMoving
  • Useful information on dynamicMeshing in OpenFOAM: Guerrero, Joel (2022): OpenFOAM advanced training. Moving meshes, rigid body motion, adaptive mesh refinement, and overset meshes. figshare. Presentation.
