transient, incompressible fan simulation
Dear Foamers

I'd like to set up a transient, incompressible fan simulation. The geometry is axisymmetric and i have a rotor and stator. But I didn't find an adequate solver and I don't know how to set up the mesh motion.

How would you set up such a case?

Thanks for reply.

Take a look at this test case:

or this:

Perhaps the transientSimpleDyMFoam should be useful for your application!?

Ggi for transient
Thanks for your advice.

Do I need to download the OF 1.6-ext Version for moving mesh cases? Are there no methods for OF 2.0.1 to simulate turbo machinery cases?
On the OF-Wiki (SIG Turbomachinery) I always read about OF-Version form 1.3, 1.4.*, 1.5-dev, 1.6-ext but not 2.0.0 or 2.0.1.
