 July 21, 2009, 10:51 Cylindrical cordinate system #1 Member   Hamoudi djamel Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 50 Rep Power: 9 Hi Everybody, I have 2D simulation i build my geometry and my Mesh in ICEM-CFD then I export them to Star-cd, all thing is well in the same coordinate system cartesian to cartesian coordinate system. But when i build my geometry and do my Mesh (ICEM-CFD) in cylindrical coordinate system in (r,theta,z) then i have my geometry in (y,z) plane, so for the velocities the radial velocity U(r) is in -------- y direction and U (theta) tangential velocity is in --------x direction and U(z) is in ------------------------------- z direction ---------------------------------------------------------------- after that i export my Mesh to Star-CD in boundary condition at the inlet part i change the coordinate system from cartesian to cylindrical from number 1 to number 2 from ( x,y,z) to (r,theta,z) then Star-CD consider that the radial velocity U(r) is --------------------- in x direction U (theta) is ----------------in y direction U(z) is ---------------------in z direction ------------------------------------------------------------------- so you can observe that there is a confusion in the axis from the initial case I try to do changement of the velocities to the axis I put U(r) in y direction and U (theta) in x direction then my simulation did not convergt i have got a bad convergence ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you very much i am in waiting for your suggestion

(If I'm not going to respond to the first one, the second won't help.) When working in cylindrical coordinates, U(r) must be in the x direction. So it sounds like you need to reorient your mesh. You can use the vtra or vgen commands to reorient your mesh. Enter help, vtra or help, vgen to get the details.
