Comsol moving boundary with loss of mass

  1. Jan 30, 2013 #1
    I need some help!My problem is a problem of moving boundary with loss of mass.... I started to use COMSOL and I need to simulate one plate with a hole on the center. And this hole is increasing with the time according to one equation (like a velocity, in m/s) which depend of the stress. Someone knows how to do this? Can I do this whit the moving mesh? Or I should use the DG?
    Thank you!

    It is not clear to me what exactly you mean with mass loss here. If the structure is changing shape due to applied stress (->strain), use the Moving Mesh interface. If the structure is changing shape due to material removal/addition, use the Deformed Geometry interface. This link gives some more info:
