Help neeeded for 3D taylor-couette
Hello everyone, I was trying to get some help creating a geometry for a 3D taylor-couette cell in gambit.
I'm trying to model rotating flow between two concentric cylinders - the inner rotating, and the outer stationary. I created three concentric cylinders of equal height and successively decreasing diameter, and subtracted the middle cylinder from the outer cylinder, to get my desired geometry. I meshed it and assigned "wall" as the boundary type to both cylinders, but I'm at a lost as to what to do for the fluid between them. Again, it's in 3D (even though it doesn't look like it here).
Thanks for any help!
