I read in this article: Centrifugal force/ Rotating Wall that the "centrifugal force gets calculated automatically during solution" but in my case it does not.

My part is a bin which has ducts perpendicular to the rotation-axis and there should come out the fluid.

The problem is that not each duct give out the fluid. The half of them push out and the other half suck in the fluid?!?!

--> The centrifugal force does NOT get calculated automatically during solution.

Thank you for your help
