Are you using slab=wedge?

If so: 1) Axis MUST be the X axis 2) Radial direction must be in Y 3) Axis MUST be at low Y (pref. Y=0) 4) Set the low Y face as a symmetry plane.

Hope this helps, Jeff

hello, Jeff,

Firstly, thank you for your help! The reactor I am analysing is a reactor similar to CSTR. I do not use slab=wedge. I set the axis the X axis. But the symmetry-axis is a 2D patch.So I set the cylindrical surface around axis the symmetry-axis. Is that right?

Kind regards, Hx
