Angular velocity, not CFD


Angular velocity as in a spinning blade. Inertia loading. Is it possible with SimScale?

Thank you,


I usually put the spinning geometry in a rotating zone and leave the fluid domain doing whatever. I think this is the most straightforward setup. If you are happy sharing your geometry there might be other solutions to consider.

Kind regards,

edit: I did not pay attention to ‘not CFD’ I’ll let someone more FEA orientated take this :wink:


HI @srichardson,

I think a centrifugal force loading condition and a nonlinear analysis should accomplish what you want.

If you can provide more details about your problem we can provide a more detailed answer based on your problem.

Good luck!
