Default Momentum source
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I was trying to simulate a 2D compressor case with momentum source. My model is 2D and a single domain with blades and vanes as sub domains; I want to get the required pressure rise without rotating the domain since my geometry is of complex.

So I want to simulate the pressure and temperature raise across the blade through momentum source. In that if I define a cylindrical momentum source with axial component the pressure is not increasing and instead I am getting a pressure loss.

I imposed a mass flow inlet and a static pressure outlet.

Thnaks and regards Siva.K
