I am trying to mesh the flow region within a centrifugal impeller. It seems that I cannot define the correct location of the material point such that I obtain the flow region within the faces of the geometry. I have included a cylinder to define my rotating zone for the future boundary condition. My inlet is a solid cylinder. Both of these cylinders where added to the original CAD file prior to uploading. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Fabian (@falvarado)!
Is it somehow possible for you to get rid of the volume-intersection/self-intersection in your model first? Uploading a new, modified CAD model should work then.
Let me know how things go!
Are you referring to the cylinder imposed onto the impeller for the MRF zone definition?
@jousefm if this is the case, then how would I define the MRF rotating zone?
I am referring to the “penetration” (if you want to call it like that) that can be seen in the picture posted by me. Is there a way that you can get rid of this?
Regarding the MRF I can recommend the following resources to you:
Drone Workshop MRF
A good project by our PowerUser @oscarcorripio how MRFs should be set up: MRF - CFD Example

Hi @jousefm ,
Thank you for your direction. I will look into those resources and keep you posted.
