Dear all
My geometry has a curved pipe. the fluid entering +y direction (inlet as pressure). The outlet axis coordinate has (+x,-y) coordinate. So I introduced outlet (velocity) as Normal to the surface.

My question is if I rotate the component in the workbench so that the outlet is along X axis, How about my result in this case and previous case? is it same or different?

Thank you

Govind

If you rotate the thing and do the same simulation you should expect the same result, just rotated. Is that what you are asking?

Or are you asking if you can use a previous rotated simulation as an initial condition? That is harder - in general, no, you cannot.

Thank you Very much
I have another question. Please find the attached pictures. I am confusing about turbulence model.I run the steady state first and then transient . My inlet is pressure and outlet is velocity . I am expecting low Reynolds turbulence occurring near the curve and the area restriction . Is my solution is converged or not.I tried SST model .I also tried tried many models like RNG K-epsilon, K-omega etc , but the solution doesn't meet the convergence criteria 10^-4
Give your advice
Thank you
Govind

This is explained in the documentation. It means the linear solver is diverging. Check that your simulation is correctly setup, improve your mesh quality, use smaller time steps, double precision numerics or a better initial condition.
