I am working on a Project to design and simulate the Motion of a Manta-Ray. I was able to design a model based on the Manta and also created a mesh for the Body and the Domain in ICEM. I have to use the Immersed Body method in CFX.

I am not able to get any tutorials to generate the fin flapping Motion. If anybody has experience dealing with Kind of subject please let me know.

It will be really helpful.

Dear Sir,


Very interesting blog.

Once again thank you for the Response.

I wanted to know if I can view the detailed tutorial after I download the Student Version of ANSYS or is there any other way as I already have the license procured by my University.


Best regards

Shyam, please find out whether your university or professor have access to ANSYS customer portal. Similar examples are available in our customer portal.
