I am trying to model a detailed isolated wheel as it rotates. The wheel has a rim which I would like to model using a sliding mesh but every time I transfer the mesh from ANSYS Meshing to Fluent the contact regions disappear and I have no way of specifying where the mesh intersections occur. I use the CutCell assembly method to create the mesh, and a contact region appears in ANSYS Meshing, but doesn't carry through to Fluent. Anybody have experience with this?

please use tetrahedral mesh.
