Immersible Solid Problems
Hello All,

I am trying to solve a rotating propeller (immersible solid) inside of a fluid domain with inlet and outlet conditions. I am having problems with solving it correctly. I can get it to solve and finish, but the results are not even common sense. They look very strange and it almost looks as if my propeller just stops rotating. I used two boundary conditions (two openings at 1 atm). Could anyone take a look at my results and/or my file? Thanks a bunch.

Can you post the output file as an attachment on the forum and some images showing what you mean?

I figured it out, thanks though. I was assuming something and didn't fully calculate v=r*w. You can delete this post, sorry!
