3/36 At present, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) community has many methods in solving moving boundary problems, for instance, dynamic mesh method and fictitious domain method and so on. The dynamic mesh method contains different techniques, for example, mesh reconstruction methods and mesh deformation methods. Introduction

4/36 Mesh reconstruction methods have been proposed based on the regeneration of mesh according to the moving boundaries. For example, when we use unstructured Cartesian mesh to solve moving boundary problems, we should fasten the mesh; the moving boundaries cut the mesh elements. These kinds of methods need to consider the cutting elements in every time step, and refine and coarsen the grids to satisfy the distribution requirements. Introduction

5/36 Introduction Mesh deformation methods are basically relied on the control models. Spring approximation model was firstly introduced by Batina to solve the vibrating airfoil flows. The basic idea is that treat every edge of mesh elements as a spring, the coefficients of the spring are related to the length of every edge of mesh elements; after the movement of the boundaries, the new positions of the mesh points are defined by solving the force equilibrium of the spring system.

6/36 A fast dynamic cloud method based on Delaunay graph mapping strategy is proposed in this presentation. A dynamic cloud method makes use of algebraic mapping principles and therefore points can be accurately redistributed in the flow field without any iteration. In this way, the structure of the gridless clouds is not necessary changed so that the clouds regeneration can be avoided successfully. Introduction
