 September 24, 2001, 02:43 making a rotating frame of Reference #1 VEEBS Guest   Posts: n/a Hi All, I am interested in simulating flow in a centrigufal compressor using CFX-TASCFLOW. Following are the conditions, what I applied for initial run. 1. rfr with specified omega 2. Walls stationary with relative frame of reference 3. Inlet with total pressure 4. Outlet with mass flow specified. I started with incompressible , turbulent flow, air is the fluid. I am not getting rise in pressure from inlet to outlet. What could be the casues ? Thanks for your time. Veebs

 September 25, 2001, 00:09 Re: making a rotating frame of Reference #4 VEEBS Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Erich /Robin, Thanks for your time. simulation aimed for only the impeller.So have one doimain defined as rotating. Solution is converged. But it shows decrease in pressure / total pressure from inlet to outlet. (no pressure rise). At the inlet, total pressure normal to the surface is defined. Thanks again Veebs

Re-define your inlet velocity components to be axial and you will get the pressure rise you expect. Best regards, Robin
