 June 2, 2006, 11:17 Single rotating reference frame #1 Belete Kiflie Guest   Posts: n/a Dear all, I have a domain which contains a rotating impeller. But the domain consists of non-rotating fluid zones before and after the impeller. I used a rotating reference frame attached to the fluid zone. But in the velocity vector plot of the solution, it appears that the velocity of the elements in the non-rotating part of the fluid have components in all directions. How can I fix this problem? Thank you in advance

Try it you will see! To avoid this you need to average the 5 (or 6) simulations when post-rpocessing or use sliding grid. B.L.

On the other way, if you will plot relative velocity vectors, then pretty much all vectors in the flow domain will have all-direction components. It is perfectly normal. Try to think more deeply about these concepts: absolute and relative velocity! Razvan

What will happen if I used a rotating reference frame attached to the fluid to simulate a flow through a pipe. Is it possible to do so in fluent theoretically and yet get meaningful result? In my domain, there is part of the fluid which is outside the influence of the rotor to get a relatively developed flow condition at the rotor inlet. Best regards
