Sliding Vane pump-motor
Which, if any, versions of CFX will handle the anaylsis of sliding vane pump-motor geometry?

Hi Enoch,

You should be able to do this with either CFX4 or 5. If you choose CFX5 (and I recommend you do) you will need the moving mesh capabilities in the latest release, CFX 5.7.

Regards, Glenn

Thanks for the reply, Glenn. I am however a bit puzzled; how could CFX4 do the analysis if if needs the moving mesh capability of 5.7?

Hi Enoch,

CFX4 has a moving mesh capability also. It is done in user fortran.
