Coupled motion of rectilinear and rotational

edited September 2017 in DualSPHysics_v4.0
Hi all,

I try run sloshing simulation where the motion of tank is a combination of translation and rotation. Can I know which part needs to modify? I know in DSPH there is certain motion has been included, or how I can couple motion of rectilinear and rotational. Thank you in advance




  • Please check the examples in MOTION folder, that also explained in the Users Guide... there is an example of what you need

    Dear Dr. Alex thank you for your comment but in this case, I directly impose movement of the tank from an experiment. I use option predefined movement with data from an external file but it limited only rotation or rectilinear only, can I combine this movement?. So what I want to do is coupled between rotation and rectilinear using option external file for prescribe motion of the tank. I also read in FAQ
    does this part is needed to modify?
    Thank you for any help about this matter.

  • yes perhaps, you can combine the motions in advance and compute the final result of those movements.... save the resulting motion in a file and use the option to read external motion from a file

    that is my suggestion now
