Hi all,

I am trying to simulate a 2D fan blade section.

I have the geometry defined by points that I extracted from the CAD definition. I know the RPM too.

I would like to know how I could set it up since I am having trouble with the side boundaries, i.e. the ones that are not inlet or outlet.

I know FLUENT will be faster to set-up & run than CFX, but the latter would be more powerful in terms of pre-proccessing.

Could anyone help me, please?
