Default RFR modelling
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I am new to CFX with some basic questions. I am trying to model centrifugal pump impeller sector using normal mode (not turbo mode). The problem I am facing is that,

1. it seems that the model is not rotating at all. (Steady state). I did right click on domain and set rotating there with 1500 rpm value and z axis as axis of rotation. Is this the correct way?

2. What is the direction of rotation? Is it by right hand rule? Thumb being the direction of axis.

Is there anything else apart from regular BCs, I have to do to set RFR model?
