    Need help with Pump Simulation

    James Kelly

      Here is the prototype of an axial flow pump for a school competition:

      I want to simulate a flow of water going through the system. I've set up a rotating region around the impeller blade - I have simulated the blade by itself fine.

       

      I've used the wizard to create a new internal simulation but I'm not sure how to get it to work - everytime I hit run I get an error saying there is no fluid volume. I tried creating a fluid subdomain using the inside faces but Solidworks kept saying it couldn't detect the faces.

       

      What am I doing wrong?
