node values vs. no node values in fluent
 
2 Attachment(s)
In fluent I am viewing filled velocity contours on my inlet.

When I check the box 'node values' and when I uncheck the box the results look dramatically different as shown in my two .png files attached.

If 'node value' means interpolation, how can it be that the two results have different orders of magnitude?

I have a 3D geometry spinning disk. The fluid is prescribed as a moving reference frame and the walls are prescribed at rotating at 0 rpm in the relative reference frame to the adjacent fluid. Does it have to do something with that?

Thanks.

Looking at the shown images, it looks like the left case is simply the velocity of the rotating frame plotted in the absolute frame, while the right case plots the z-velocity with respect to the reference frame. Because the actual velocities are an order of magnitude smaller than the frame velocity, the right one basically doesn't show anything. That's my idea on what we see here. Why we see it is a different question, and to that I have no answer currently.
