Hello, I want to know if to simulate a rotating pump I have to use the dynamic mesh, I ask this because I was trying to simulate without it, changing the settings from the rotating wall option, but the results does not look good.

Dear Arthur
you can use sliding mesh or MRF (moving reference frame) instead of dynamic mesh. MRF is fast but you will have some errors in modeling. sliding mesh is better than MRF in errors.
