Hi, I'm working on a pump flow analysis
I got some strange results so now I'm refining the mesh, any advice about the mesh elements sizes I think (I don't know if I'm right, that smaller inflantation is better but if I put inflantation 0.001 with the volume mesh I get warning big aspect ratio (default body spacing 0.005, default face spacing min 0.001 max 0.005) only if I put inflantation 0.005 I don't get the warning, but the inflantated region is quite big (or it seams to me it is )
.
any advice on this subject, is there a big influence in the results depending on the inflantation (its a simple pump inlet - impeller - volute), by the way I/m using frosen rotor is this ok for calculations (I need q-h, q-power, and q - efficiency curves)

What do you mean inflantation? I think you may encounter the big aspect ratio problem which means the mesh is stretched too much, small thickness with long length/width of the mesh. Decreasing the global mesh size or surface/line mesh size will get the aspect ratio lower down.
Wish it help.

Hi Your second mesh looks good, only problem is the big transition from the prism to the tets. Generally you would have convergence problems. I would increase the number of layers and the prism expansion ratio to get a better transition.
Frozen rotor does give good results for pumps but your final results does depend a lot on other factors also.
