pump_passion is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I am trying to simulate a centrifugal pump (impeller-volute interacton). Do you think that is better to use the frozen rotor algorithm or stage? Why?

I don't understand what the stage algorithm does? CFX help talk about a circunferential averaging in bands. What does it means? When this algorithm shoul be used?

Thanks to all.

Regards
