 June 3, 2008, 05:39 Rotating boundsary ? #1 conan Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links for example, air flows inside a 3D square channel, say x is flow direction, y,z are cross direction,the case is very simple. The channel sits 0.5m from y-axes. Now, I want to study the effect of rotation. The channel is rotating with y-axes, how to set rotating boundary? if I have set "FLUID, single moving frame, ratating velocity=500rpm, direction(0,1,0)" For wall, what is the difference in wall boundary between "staionary" and "movingwall,relative to adjacant cell zone, speed=0" ? for this case, which option should I choose? thank you

I mean, you can set that in Fluent, but you won't have a good solution for your problem. For solving that, I think you'll have to use some moving mesh models... Not quite easy to set! Do you really have to use a square channel? Can't you have a cilindric duct? With a cilindric one, you could just do a 2D axisymmetric simulation and that'd be fine. My best regards, Victor

You say that x is your flow direction, but it rotates around y ? It's wierd for me...

Hi Conan, I know its been awhile since you had this problem. Did you manage to solve... if so how? I'm currently trying to analyse the effect of rotation in channels, however I have not been able to validate my results with an estalished paper, namely 'Heat Transfer in Rotating Passages' by Wagner et al 1991.

Any suggestions?
