Fluent Reversed Flow for a cascade simulation
I need to study flow properties for a particular cascade that I've designed. I tried out first with the simplest conditions using ANSYS FLUENT.
My fluid model in inviscid, incompressible(Euler) and subsonic. It is a compressor cascade configuration. Inlet condition is given to be velocity inlet and exit as outflow. The top and bottom surfaces are periodic (translational). I have attached an image of my geometry .
For this simple configuration, Fluent says there's reverse flow occuring on outlet face.
Would anyone happen to know what could be the possible reason?
