Simulation of a Rigid body impacting a fluid layer

Mickael Moscardo's picture


I'am a French student, and I have to work on a student project with Ansys of which the aim is to know the pressure (during time) in a compressible fluid layer impacted by a cylindric rigid body having a constant velocity.

Do you know if it is possible to solve this problem with CFX/CFD Flotran, or if I have to explore an other way to solve my problem? Has somebody experience in this domain (impact, fluid), and could help me? Do you know some similar tutorials?

Thank you for your help.
