Flow Patterns
Hi Fluent Users,

I have modeled a 3D centrifuge which has an inlet and 2 outlets. When I started the flow simulation in Fluent, I assigned boundary conditions of Velocity Inlet and 2 Pressure outlets for the outlets. The Centrifuge has 2 walls, both rotating. Now when I look at the "Report Fluxes", I see that Fluent is predicting that theres only one outlet. In other words, Flow is coming in via inlet as well as one of the outlets. I also observed that when I am not rotating the 2 walls, then Fluent predicts that flow comes in, goes out through both the outlets. So when I rotate whats going on??? Any thoughts on this will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,

- Andy
