Hope all is well.
I'm trying to create a transient thermal model of a liquid filled tire rotating on a flat heated bed.
I have included simplified 2D schematic of my system - see attached image 1.
I'm able to simulate individual component in ANSYS.
For example, thermal simulation using CFD fluent and tire rotation using explicit dynamics module. But having difficulties in including both into a single simulation.
Also, I have an idea to mimic the rotation of tire by manipulating a rotational heat source around the outer periphery of the tire - attached image 2.
First, this won't simulate the mixing of liquid within tire when it rotates and second, I have no idea how to add a rotating heat source around the tire but I'm sure this is doable in ANSYS.
Any line of advice is highly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
