Hi,

I'm using multiple reference frame for centrifugal fan CFD analysis. Region around the blades are set to be rotating frame and the housing is static reference frame. Do I have to model the volume of the housing of the centrifugal fan and specify 0 RPM?

What is the direction of the rotating frame?Following the blades rotation or opposite?

Thanks
