Transient contact of a blunt object

Since 9 dec. 2013 there is a nice video on youtube showing a simulation involving friction, contact and a moving blunt object:

Does anyone know where to find the source files of this example?

Re: ElmerGUI Portable

I noticed there is no portable version for the current version Elmer. Are there any plans for this? I would very much appreciate a portable version.

Re: Solar radiation incident on a boundary plus convection

The keyword to search for is "heat flux". You can find it in the Elmer Models Manual or on this forum:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3262

That, combined with the last thing you said.

Re: GiD problem type

Matthias,

I've been using Salome 7.3.0 under Windows 7 on the job this week for about a few hours tops. No crashes or hangups so far.

Re: GiD problem type - SOLVED

Problem solved!

I totally missed that Salome has been published for Windows 64 bit since August 2013. This gave me the opportunity to use this software on my employee's notebook. I followed the steps on http://www.elmerfem.org/elmerwiki/index ... e_to_Elmer and it worked!

Re: GiD problem type

Same problem here. Due to a multiple body problem with double surfaces (which unfortunately GMSH cannot handle without problems, either due to limitations of the "cut and merge" function or crashes during the 2D meshing) I ended up trying the evaluation version of GiD. I tried to follow tutorial 2 o...

Could you give the color scale for this image?
Did you already tried decreased the convergence tolerances? Does this affect the shape or scale of the pressure distribution?

Re: Rotating inner ring / Normal-tangential boundary

Peter,

Thank you for the (very fast) response. I'll try your solution as soon as I get the Windows laptop back (not mine, but running all the GUI and Post stuff). My own PC runs Linux and I still haven't been able to build all Elmer components from source, but that's another topic.

Regards,
Jeroen

Rotating inner ring / Normal-tangential boundary

I'm doing a simple test-case on rotating boundaries in context of the Navier-Stokes solver. The long-term goal is to analyse the heat transfer in mechanical seals. The ring is a fluid body with internal diameter of 60mm, outer diameter of 80mm and height of 10mm. Since the ring was modelled in mm, I...
