I would like to Create the piston movement in Ansys?

      Dear Friends, nI have to understand the flow dynamic through the gas cylinder with inlet and outlet and it include the piston too, outlet fluid is affected by the vertical oscillation movement of the piston. na. I have created the body in the solid work, which will be best .extension to import, I am using Parasolid? nb. How can we create that movement using moving mesh, do I need to write udf? For UDF, can we use matlab or just C++ code?nc. I am not sure, how can create the movement or start tacking this problem? Can anyone suggest any good example to begin with, later on I can look for the complexity?n

      I can only answer part a. of your question. I recommend you post questions b. and c. in the Fluids category and not the Structures category.nThe best file format to use to prepare geometry for meshing is Parasolid.nDesignModeler requires you to export to Parasolid first, then use File, Import External Geometry File.nSpaceClaim can open SolidWorks directly, so you don't need to export from SolidWorks, and it can also open Parasolid. In either case, use File, Open and set the file type.n
