Default relative velocity vectors
Posts: n/a

I'm modelling flow trough axial fan. It seems to work ok but as I display velocity vectors a problem occurs - the vectors of absolute and relative velocities are the same. In one case it functioned ok, but afte r I refined the mesh in Gambit the problem is there again. Am I missing somethin here???

Please help,

I have the same problem and now I could not understand how you got it right.
Which reference zones have you defined and how?
Can you please tell me the details because I am really frustrated with the situation
Thanks in advance
