Reference Frame - Mesh Motion

Recommended Posts

Hello experts,

 

I am working with AcuSolve tutorial Acu-5000 and Acu 5001. which are using the same model, difference is one is steady state/reference frame and other is transient/mesh motion.

 

I am wondering which one should i use to represent the rotation of fan-blades? reference frame or mesh motion? and why?

(image below)

 

Thank in advance!

They both represent rotation.  The reference frame is for steady-state, and the mesh rotation is for transient.  While in some cases the steady-state assumption with reference frame is very good, typically the accuracy with mesh motion will be better.  Of course, the transient simulation takes much more run-time, so that is the trade-off - increased accuracy at the cost of longer runtime.

Very detail answer.

Thank you very much! :D
