Default A 1/4 Tank Model
Posts: n/a
Hi All,

If i model a 1/4 of a stirred tank and use the transient rotor option, after 90 degrees rotation I imagine (on the physical space) the inner and outer domains are apart.

Is this imagination correct that the two domains will be apart, say at 100 degrees rotation?

If my time step is say 0.1s and my impeller speed is 1 rev/s. I will need 10 times steps for one revolution, at least for a full geometry tank. Will this still apply in the case of 1/4 tank model? If so, what happens between the 3rd and the 7th time steps?

Thanks Omondi
