STAR CCM+: Rotating Computational Domain
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

Iím trying to rotate a computational domain about an external point (axis) similar to the image Iíve attached (ignoring the simplified car inside the domain) where the red/green lines show the boundaries of the domain. Does anyone know how I should go about this without having to use a moving mesh or an unsteady solver? Iíve created a Cartesian coordinate system located outside of the domain and created a rotating reference frame about this point for the domain but for some reason, the domain does not rotate at all thus the flow through the domain is not curved.

Thanks in advance.
