Default Rotational speed
Posts: n/a
Hi there,

I am studying a wells-turbine. This turbine is running at high rpm. I know the inlet and outlet boundary conditions. The problem is that I dont know how to give a rotational speed to the turbine. If I only set inlet and outlet boundary conditions the results are like the turbine was stopped.

What to do?

You must set the fluid zone as the rotation zone.
