The article outlines the key guidelines for setting up an overset mesh simulation in Simcenter STAR-CCM+.
Overset meshes are used to bring together different parts of a computational domain and move them relative to one another without having to re-mesh multiple times. This functionality allows users to easily simulate different moving parts easily. A common application of overset meshing is gearboxes.

This article walks through various considerations at each stage in the workflow of an overset simulation. Additionally, it directs users to overset resources and documentation amongst Simcenter’s provided materials.
