Monitoring Static Pressure on Rotor
1 Attachment(s)

I am running a transient stator-rotor simulation with 8 periods and 30 time steps.
I created a monitoring point at the inlet of rotor to monitor the change of static pressure over time step. I expect that there is sinusoidal fluctuation plot with 8 peaks in pressure at the monitoring plot in ANSYS CFX Solver because I am running the simulation with 8 periods.. However, the monitoring plot shows only one peak, which seems to me that there is only 1 period in simulation. Can anyone enlighten me on this matter?

I attach the picture of pressure versus accumulated time step plot.
