 March 7, 2006, 06:10 Hi Andy, If you are looking #3 Senior Member   Håkan Nilsson Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Gothenburg, Sweden Posts: 193 Rep Power: 9 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 UEqn ( fvm::div(phi, U) + turbulence->divR(U) + (2*Omega ^ U) // Coriolis force + Fcent // Centrifugal force, computed ONCE above ); Håkan.

 March 7, 2006, 09:29 Thank you for your reply. And #4 New Member   Andy Cong Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 9 Thank you for your reply. And I think I am looking for the rotor-stator interaction.
