pure sliding
Hi, Need to know if StarCD can do pure sliding(rotation)without attachment boundaries ?? Meaning, if there is a gap between fluid regions, can there happen pure rotation only until it sees another fluid region ?? Please send replies.

Thanks, Mac.

Re: pure sliding

If my understanding is correct, you want to set the gap at 0 rpm and different rotational speed on both sides. If so then you can set the gap rotation with positive and negative sign so it will not rotate.

Thanks Arpan for posting your reply..

Let me frame the question again. Assuming that a rotating member slides across a stationery member and if there is a gap in the stationery member, will the rotating member purely rotate in this gap region ??

Please reply. Thanks a ton.

Hello Mac,

Sorry to say but I am not able to answer your question. I am too fresh with star-cd to answer this question.

Regards, Arpan
