Default Where's my rotation?
Posts: n/a

I am attempting to simulate a buoyancy and rotation driven flow in a container using CFX 5.5. I believe that I am getting the 'correct' results in the stationary case (nice roll cells), but I see no influence of Coriolis terms when I turn up the rotation (1, 10 or 50 rad/s).

Any ideas what's wrong or what I have forgotten to do?

Hi Gustaf,

How do you have your walls set-up?

Hey Robin,

My walls are pretty simple no-slip boundaries with a constant temperature.

I received a letter from CFX-support suggesting that it might be some simple bug. We'll see...
