### evaluate boundary normal

Hi:

I am solving a fluid structure interaction problem, using ALE, partitioned solver, each time the solid moves, it changes its configuration, with all the coordinate of mesh and dof know, how could I efficiently evaluate its boundary normal n , so that I could mulitpy p with n to get the neumann boundary condition?

Any advise would be appreciated!
