Do you think axis symmetric will change the secondary flow structure?
 
Hi, dear all,

Recently has argument on whether "axis symmetric model will change the secondary flow structure ", and hope someone can provide some book or website where i can dig in this statement.

background:
axis symmetric: which is one of tools who try to solve the 3D model in CFD with less time and memory. If the model in 3D is symmetry, axis symmetric model can be used.

secondary flow
a secondary flow is a relatively minor flow superimposed on the primary flow
more details can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secondary_flow

do you think axis symmetric will change the secondary flow structure?
