Default Rotating propeller
Posts: n/a

I would like to compute the flow around a four bladed propeller in homogeneous flow. And the idea is to consider only one blade and specifiy a periodicity at the boundary. I 'll be using fluent for the computations. does any one know if it's a good idea to rotate the flow and keep the propeller and shaft still, or is there any other procedure ???

thanking you in advance
