A Numerical Analysis on Flows Around a Moving Body Using a Mesh Transformation Method Kim, Tae-Gyun; Heo, Nam-Geon;
A flow analysis is performed in the present study for the moving body problem by proposing a mesh transformation method for the movement of the body in the fluid medium. Unlike other moving mesh techniques, a mesh itself is not moving but changes its property as time marches in a mesh transformation method. The flow field results are compared with those by other moving mesh technique, and showed good agreements. The movement of a floatable body in the flow field caused by the moving body is also studied in the present study by using a mesh transformation technique and a fluid/structure interaction method.
