Using a cylindrical coordinates
Hello everyone,

I'm trying to simulate a gate valve in a pipe. But this was simulated in a cartesian coordinate. However I'd like to know some instructions to simulate it using cylindrical coordinates.

Thanks for help.:D

Why worry?
Hi Ulisses,
I see that the mesh is already in 3d, so, why worry about whether it is in cylindrical coordinates?

Good luck. Happy CFD-ing.

Thanks a lot Kelvin,

Now I notice that there's no reason for my concern.
