Default Reg: Modeling hub leakage flow in CFX
Posts: n/a

If anyone has modelled hub leakage flow for an multistage axial compressor in CFX. We are generating the grid in Turbogrid. Turbogrid doesn't allow a patch surface to be created on the hub. The way that it can be done is to take the Turbo grid mesh into ICEM and create a patch surface in ICEM. Instead if there is anyother mehtod to avoid this incorporate this in CFX please let me know. It would be of great help.

Thanks Venkat

CFX have done it themselves, so it may be best to ask them directly

Hi Venkat,

I think the only way to do it without creating a new surface would be to create an expression in CEL which is a step function and apply it to the boundary.

i.e. over most of the hub the expression would be equal to zero (to represent a wall) and over a small area it is equal to the velocity you want to simulate (to represent inlet/outlet).

Now in CFX-11 it is possible to create patches in CFX-Pre from original mesh just picking from surface mesh. Try that when you get version 11.0.
