Hello there,

I am trying to set up a swirling boundary condition for a gas for the inlet patch of a cylinder, considering only a section of it (wedge). By using the swirlFlowRateInletVelocity, I don't obtain a rotation around the cylinder axis., but around an internal point of the wedge.
Here I attach a picture of what happens.
Does anybody know how to manage it?

Best regards
