Hi All,

Has anyone had much success in modeling rotating machinery where multiphase flow occurs to map the torque curve? Basically anything like a torque converter, retarder, pump of a centrifugal type, engine, etc...?

Currently I am in the process of getting the vapor data of the fluid, but until then I thought I would do myself a favor by reading what tips others have as to what works for them.

There are some comments on cavitation on the rotating machinery best practises guide. This is part of the normal CFX documentation.
