Am into a project, where I am trying to simulate the valve opening and closing of intake manifold of an engine with the mass flow data generated at the outlet integrating it with crank angle(Based upon which valve action happens).

Is that possible by moving grid/mesh(dynamic)to simulate open/close of valves. If there are anty other possibilities please help me.

Thank you !

yes, you can do it using dynamic mesh tool in fluent.

Thanks Keyur, 

The video was helpful.

But, how this can be applied incase of closing and opening of a 3D pipe at the end(solid pipe). 

Since, I am new to dynamic mesh, I don't have any idea, Looking forward for your guidance.
