(1). Congratulation! (2). Could you reveal the secret of your definition of the Torque calculation? This could help eliminating the same trip to the support engineer by our readers. (it is just a thought. it is not required if you prefer to keep it a secret.)

Hi J Keays,

When one uses Turo Perform macro, it asks for inflow and outflow regions, and blade region, amongh other things. If the grid is generated using TurboGrid, the blade region is named BLADE and if we use BuildCase, it puts a suffix such as _R1 to indicate that it's the blade of a rotating part and _S1 to indicate stationary part etc. So, the macro asks for blade region also. What do you input? I input BLADE_R1. As far as I understand, BLADE doesn't include hub. So how do you manage to calculate torque at hub?

If it's not a secret(as indicated by John), please enlighten me.
