Dear sirs

I have managed to read torque of a wheel rotated by a fluid entering the turbine casing.

But when copied the turbine, example copied turbine A into another turbine eg turbine B. With the outlet of turbine A connected to the inlet of turbine B, turbine B (wheel B) did not give a torque reading.

The fluid flow did follow path starting from inlet of turbine A, across wheel A, then out of A and towards turbine B. fluid crossing wheel B and then out.

Is there something I should have done when used the Pattern tool to copy turbine A?

The post processor does show Wheel1.trg, and Wheel2.trg, which are the two solid wheel bodies.

Any tips anyone please?

Just tried to adjust the co-ordinates to match rotating wheels co-ordinates in the mesh-motion menu. Still no torque captured in the post-processor.

Just FYI, entered the coordinates from the mesh modeler. Select body>Properties, and then found xyz coordinates.

In the post-processor, was able to read torque on disk.src, but not disk.trg. Still trying to fing out the difference.
