Fan modelling using body forces :specification
 
Hi again, my question in the previous message may not be specific enough. I'd like to know how to mesh the fan ... I've heard that using body forces, it is not necessary to use the true blades´ geometry for example. Is there also potential coupling problem like in MRF (no couple between spin/no spin region)?? Any tip is welcome :)

Fred.

Which tool are you using? Do you mean the fan sources in STAR-CCM+ and STAR-Design?
