Hi everyone

I am doing simulation of rotating cylinder in air at low rpm . there is a heat source inside the cylinder and i want to dissipate heat.
For this simulation i am considering a rotating fluid domain around the cylinder of some thickness, can anyone suggest me what should be the thickness of the rotating domain and how many inflation layers i should consider inside it.

If in doubt simulate a range of values and do a sensitivity analysis on it. That way you can be sure you are capturing what is important in your application rather than the opinion of somebody on a forum who does not really know what you are modelling.

Rahul,
Glenn Horrocks is correct. Apart from that number of inflation layers will depend on minimum size and max. size of mesh in your domain and growth factor.If min. size is 0.2mm, max size is 2mm and growth factor is 1.2, then 0.2*1.2^(m-1)=2:
where m-1=>number of layers required.

Hi Rahul,
I'm also doing the similar kind of work but not getting expected result. Can you share the boundary condition you have set i.e cell zone condition, vel. inlet, outlet and wall?
Thanks in advance.

If the physical setup is a rotating heated cylinder (I wonder what the other boundary conditions are), then I doubt that the correct computational setup is a rotating domain.
A rotating boundary condition on the cylinder wall sounds better to me.

Dear Flotus1,
I'm working in Fluent (Ansys-14.5). Can you please tell how to set rotating boundary in Fluent.My domain cylinder along with water flow inside rotates and treated as rotating solid cylinder.
Thanks in advance.

To be more precise, I wonder what ecactly you are trying to model, which results you expect and how exactly the solutions you got so far differ from your expectations. Be descriptive...

Dear Flotus1,
I want to do LES modelling of rotating turbulent pipe flow.Main features to calculate are RMS vel.(x,y&z), Mean vel.(x,y&z),Dissipation rate ,turb. kinetic energy decay and to get energy spectrum to study energy transfer mechanism. To compare these parameters between rotating pipe and stationary pie flow.
