Hello everyone,

I'm trying to simulate a gate valve in a pipe. But this was simulated in a cartesian coordinate. However I'd like to know some instructions to simulate it using cylindrical coordinates.

Thanks for help.

Here is the mesh that I used. This one was created in Salome and exported to OpenFoam:

Hi Ulisses,
I see that the mesh is already in 3d, so, why worry about whether it is in cylindrical coordinates?

Good luck. Happy CFD-ing.

Regards,
Kelvin

Thanks a lot Kelvin,

Now I notice that there's no reason for my concern.
