Moving mesh does not affect heat transfer calculation

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

I'm using moving mesh module to simulate an object sliding on top of a static one in heat transfer in solids module.

I want to see how the motion of the top object deforms temperature distribution in the system. Despite the motion of the top object, heat transfer is calculated as if it was static in its initial position. The temperature distribution is plotted with the top objected displaced as it should after motion, but the distribution itself is displaced with the object and not affected by the motion.

So it seems that the motion of the top object using the moving mesh module is not reflected in the heat transfer calculation.
