Total Temperature in a Rotating Frame
I've noticed in the rotating frame of my simulation the total temperature in some places is less than the temperature at the same point. I would expect the solver to calculate To = T + V^2 / 2Cp, and therefore To > T (total temp greater than static temp).
The problem doesn't occur in the stationary frame of my simulation, has anyone seen anything similar before? I'm using CFX 5.7
Re: Total Temperature in a Rotating Frame
"Total Temperature" is based on Rothalpy. Your formula is not correct. It should be To = T + 0.5*(V_rel^2-V_spin^2)/Cp. This can be less than static Temperature if V_spin is large. See the documentation on "Rotating Frame Quantities" in the Solver Theory Manual for more info.
