Hi all,
i am newer in FLUENT. I am simulating an axial fan with transient and MRF. Is it possible am last to see the rotating fan from the result AVI-file (e.g. pathline)? or I must simulate with sliding mesh?
thank you in advance!

Since the position of your fan does not change you would not be able to get a video with the rotation. You would need to do a dynamic mesh for that
