Re: need help,rotatary oscillating cylinder
I think you should try to specify som more... How should i rotate? How would you like it to oscillate

Re: need help,rotatary oscillating cylinder
I am very glad to hear that you want to help me . I am a chinese. My english is very poorl.but i will try my best to explain this problem. I want to simulate viscous flow past an impulsively started rotating circular cylinder in a uniform stream. After this project, I want to simulate when circular cylinder rotatory oscillating around its axis .i want 500<Re<4000,and high alfa nubmer. I want to hear how to setup gambit to create grid, and how to setup fluent to simulate this problem.i am a newbie. thanks a lot.i search some sites,but cannot find useful information.if you know some useful sites,please tell me. if you can help me or give me some advise,i am very pleased.

Re: need help,rotatary oscillating cylinder
see your fluent documentation. there's many example there, maybe you can use the rotating reference frame for your problem. OK??
