Good Morning to all.
I have been working ona rotating wheel vehicle simulation. First, I did some simulations of the whole vehicle without rotating wheels and they converged giving reasonable results. Then I just put the wheel to rotate in a free environment (without the wheel well) and again it converged and gave reasonable results.Anyways, when I try to join both things the simulation diverges.
I have tried to refine the mesh inside the wheel well (although I don´t know if it is still to coarse)and it hasn´t worked. I have even tried to simulate 1/4 of the car (just to check on convergence) but it still diverges.
The link goe to an image of the geometry.
I cut the wheel on its bottom a little bit to make the simulation more real. The body on the wake is just an aid for a mesh refinement. My mesh is no dynamic. I just put a condition in the wheel of a rotating wall which is congruent with a moving floor.
I would appreciate very much if someone could give me a hint.
Thank you very much, http://postimage.org/image/8mwj2dwud/dcdc4148/
