Hello, guys

I would like to know if it is possible to simulate an impeller with a fluid inlet over it.

Think about a garden sprinkler (but single phase). That would be a good image of it.

Any ideas or examples?

I am still not very experienced with OF, still too attached to CFX/Fluent way of thinking:
- can you define some point fluid mass sources or you need to define proper inlets (BC's) for each inlet? As the mass flow is low and the inlet is small, I would go for point source, but don't know if it is possible.

Many thanks
