Default mass flow through different pitch angles

Hi all,

I want to launch the calculation with different pitch angles (90deg vs. 180deg). My question is: Do I have to specify mass flow through this interface or it is automatically calulated from pitch ratio?

I just specified pitch angles but I have imbalance of mass flow between inlet/outlet which is not negligible.

All replies apriciated. Thanks a lot.

I do not think pitch angle is taken into account for mass flow boundaries.

If you have a large imbalance that is a convergence issue, not a pitch angle issue.
