Hi.


I am trying to simulate forced convection inside a rotating cylinder using pimpleFoam solver. Which boundary condition should I use for the 'U' file?


is 'rotatingWallVelocity' type is the correct one? For example:-



FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class volVectorField;
object U;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

dimensions [0 1 -1 0 0 0 0];

internalField uniform (0 0 0);

boundaryField
{
bottom
{
type rotatingWallVelocity;
origin (0 0 0);
axis (0 0 1);
omega 60;
}

top
{
type slip;
}

sides
{
type rotatingWallVelocity;
origin (0 0 0);
axis (0 0 1);
omega 60;
}
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //


The 'bottom', 'top', and 'sides' are the three sides of the cylinder.


Though it seems to simulate rotational flow inside, the solver is taking too much time to get the solution than for other cases with b.c. other than 'rotatingWallVelocity'.


Is this the correct way to simulate flow inside a rotating cylinder?



Suggestions are welcome.
