dear frnds, I am studying a propeller(rotating body). i have generated one rotating domain around the propeller and one outer control volume. i gave a fixed rpm for rotating domain and giving some translational velocity at VELOCITY INLET; my problem is i am getting same thrust for diff values of velocities at inlet. plz tell why so.
thnx in adv for ur suggestions.
