Grayfox is on a distinguished road
Hello, I would like to know how to introduce moving parts into a fluid simulation e.g. a rotating disk inducing flow in tandem with a fixed wall. My guess is that this capability would be found under the mechanical application, but I don't see a mechanical topic under analysis systems in the toolbox (although there are numerous), and the ones I do see I'm not sure how to implement (only "Fluid Flow CFX" and "Fluid Flow Fluent" appear in my workbench). I do see "Mechanical Model" under component systems, but I can't get it to appear in my toolbox. Am I stuck with just using no-slip conditions? I don't know how to initiate a volumetric torsional flow among other things without moving parts. Thanks in advance for your time.
