flow through impeller
Hi, I would like to know if somebody managed to get a converged solution for a 3D turbulent flow through a centrifugal impeller of a pump, using fluent?

Re: flow through impeller
Do you want a converged or a correct solution? Just getting a converged solution is very easy ;-)

Re: flow through impeller
(1). Yes, Both Fluent and CFX-TASCflow can be used for the radial turbine/pump impeller flow. (2). Since the flow is highly 3-D, it is hard to know whether the solution is accurate or not. (3). It is also very difficult to do measurement. (most available data were performed for 2-D configuration)

Re: flow through impeller
Thank you Joern Beilke and John C. Chien for your answers, indeed I'am getting converged solutions but they don't make any physical sense at all. I'll keep on trying.Ciao.
