There has been much interest in understanding flows inside an open and fixed vertical cylindrical tank, driven by the rotating impeller  when the top is a free surface. We implemented a new module of moving solid object in the code BLUE able to simulate fluid structure interaction. Several types of motion and also different shapes of object could occur. The figure above shows an example of a rotating impeller entraining a free surface (air-water) deformation. The impeller contains 4 blades and it rotates anticlockwise (pumping down configuration) .
