How mesh a rotating domain?
2 Attachment(s)
Attachment 14707

I need help please

I have a model imported from AUTODESK INVENTOR with 3 different fluid bodies frozen, then took ICEM Mesh, we generated a grid to each of them and open it in CFX_PRE, who tells me that the domains are not defined.
One of the domains I have to give conditions of rotation.

My question is:

Is it OK to generate the mesh in ICEM and then define the domains in CFX_PRE?

How would I have to generate the mesh to define a rotating domain in CFX_PRE?

Thanks for your answers

I attached them images to better understand the problem

can you please explain the procedure too:confused:

ah I missed this thread.

For nozzle and outer domain, I have used ICEM hexa and rotor blade was meshed in turbo-grid and made copies in cfx-pre.

I can send you ICEM and turbogrid files...:)

Could you please email me those files (ICEM, Turbogrid and CFX ). I am also struggling to model a turbine. I haven't still figured out how to setup the rotating mesh.
Thanks lot..:)
