Hi, I start a simulation which has a rotating zone, but I don't know what can do this in FOAM, could anyone help me?

Best Regards.

Hi Andy, If you are looking

Hi Andy,

If you are looking for a tutorial on rotor-stator interaction, have a look at icoTopoFoam, mixer2D.

If you only want to compute the flow in a rotating reference frame, add something similar to the following to a suitable solver:

dimensionedVector Omega
(
"Omega",
dimensionSet(0, 0, -1, 0, 0),
vector(0, 2*M_PI/60*(-595), 0) //The last number is RPM
);
// Calculate the centrifugal force
volVectorField Fcent = (Omega ^ (Omega ^ mesh.C()));

tmp<fvvectormatrix> UEqn
(
fvm::div(phi, U)
+ turbulence->divR(U)
+ (2*Omega ^ U) // Coriolis force
+ Fcent // Centrifugal force, computed ONCE above
);

Håkan.

And I think I am looking for the rotor-stator interaction.
