duri is on a distinguished road
I am trying out fluent's MRF tutorial in MRFSimpleFoam. For inlet BC I used total pressure bc where i could preserve my inlet total pressure. While running it shown some error that volScalarField rho not found. So, i removed rho and psi field from total pressure BC.
Now solver is starting the iteration but pressure and velocity became completely unbounded.

My BC's are,

inlet : total pressure fixed to 200
velocity zeroGradient

outlet : pressure fixedValue to 0
velocity zeroGradient

Please help me in setting up inlet bc.
One more doubt, do i need to include surface names that rotate along with rotating zone in nonrotatingpatch () in MRFZone file.

Attesz is an unknown quantity at this point

did you find answer for your problem? I want to use the same boundary conditions like you, was it stable?
