Hi All,

I am trying to simulate the effects of rotation on the outlet temperature of fluid which flows through the helical coil. The coil consist of 1 turn. Wall temperature is set to 500K. The inlet temperature of the fluid is set to 300K.

The outlet temperature without rotation is 311K. There is no any difference when I use rotation. I am using moving reference frame for the fluid with 3000RPM. And I choose Y-axis = 1.

Please advice.
