    Flow analysis of a 2-stroke engine

    Jimmy Hoac
      I am trying to run a flow analysis of a 2-stroke engine. It is my first time using Floworks and have gone through the tutorials and whatnot. My main question is if Floworks is able to run a flow analysis of moving objects? In the engine, flow comes through the inlet ports, gets covered by the piston, and goes out the outlet ports. I am able to run an analysis of the engine where only the inlet port is exposed. However, after flow comes through the inlet, the inlet port is sealed and only the outlet port is exposed. I'm not sure how to run the analysis if the inlet port is sealed. In my attempts on doing a stand still analysis of this configuration, Solidworks crashed every time.
