is the flow entering radially?
how far are your bcs from your rotating region?
what are you comparing the results to?
if you're new to using rotation i would recommend that you go through the technical reference, solving engineering problems documents and also the kb to make sure you have followed all the recommendations for rotating regions.
the software has been validated so most commonly, problems come from setups that don't match or being outside the limitations of the software
first, thanks for your support.. in reply to your questions, let me brief you about the project in hand, the pump im trying to simulate had already been manufactured and i have tested it in the company test-lab, we need to verify the resukts by using solid-works flow-simulation software.
the pump is of centrifugal type, the water flow to the oinlet of the pump from the side (horizontally) as shown in the picture below and exit the volute from the top side, this pump is "end-suction" type.
i have used internal analysis, with rotating global coordinate system,boundaries condition are shown in the picture below.the inlet and outet lids are about 100 mm away from the rotating part (the impeller).
i have verified the gemotry and below is fluid-volume
i ran the analysis and after 6 hours of waiting, the results are disappointing, im comparing the simulation results with the actual i got from the test lab. the flow is crossing the volute which is supposed to be stationary and defined as "real-wall" , see results snap below
i hope the above are answering your questions. looking forward to see where i went wrong!
the application is valid
i don't know what that plotis that you're showing, it looks like flow trajectories but that you've enabled an option like "flatten" that would make them look weird
my suspicion is that you haven't followed recommendations for setting up rotating regions. for example extending the inlets and outlets so that they are far from the region of interest. check out the documentation.
