Hi Everybody,
I have a problem,I have 2D simulation i build my geometry and my Mesh in ICEMCFD, then I export them to Starcd, all thing is well in the same coordinate system cartesian to cartesian coordinate system. But when i build my geometry and do my Mesh (ICEMCFD) in cylindrical coordinate system in (r,theta,z) then i have my geometry in (y,z) plane, so for the velocities the radial velocity U(r) is in  y direction and U (theta) tangential velocity is in x direction and U(z) is in  z direction  after that i export my Mesh to StarCD in boundary condition at the inlet part i change the coordinate system from cartesian to cylindrical from number 1 to number 2 from ( x,y,z) to (r,theta,z) then StarCD consider that the radial velocity U(r) is  in x direction U (theta) is in y direction U(z) is in z direction  so you can observe that there is a confusion in the axis from the initial case I try to do changement of the velocities to the axis I put U(r) in y direction and U (theta) in x direction then my simulation did not convergt i have got a bad convergence  I am in waiting for your suggestion Thank you very much for you

So won't a simple rotation fix it up?
