Moving solids during analysis

I am potentially looking at modelling a system that involves a few moving parts. Now I have never done anything as dynamic as this with the software, setting transient settings to thermal properties is the furthest I have gone.


Is this even possible? If so is there a tutorial I can work through to familiarise myself with what the capabilities/limitations are?

 Yes, check out our Tutorials. We have a couple motion models.
There is an axial check valve as well as a centrifugal pump (that uses a rotating region).

This should get you started with moving bodies. Take a look at the Wiki Help on some of our Motion Guidelines as we do discuss some of the meshing details and best practices for doing this type of modeling.
