pump's flow simulation
dear all,

I was attempting to create a flow simulation for a pump but not really sure is the setting right or not. my goal was to obtain the pressure different. Do comments.

Below is the setting:
> inlet define as 0 m^3/s
> outlet define as static pressure
> using local rotating region where the local region is disable & define with certain RPM.

final result i get -ve pressure at 1 side, is this correct? For the pressure different, i have to add both or minus?

Hi, in the case of your statement negative pressure shows, that the cavitation flow is presented. You should turn cavitation option on to obtain the solution.

General Settings>Fluid> and find the cavitation checkbox here

i see. Is it also related to my meshing setup as well? is there anything that i need to take note on the mesh side?
