I’m working on a concept similar to this: (https://acfdlab.miami.edu/CFJ_webpage/CFJ_web_dir/introduction_CFJ.html)
In my concept, I’m trying to apply a similar method to propellers. So I’m trying to make a simulation to see how well it works (or not works).
On my first simulation I have the following setup:
- A propeller in an MRF zone
- An inlet to the upper surface of the propeller blades (it looks similar to the injection part of the airfoil on the picture)
The problem is that the jet doesn’t seem to have any effect whatsoever, compared to when I simulate without the jet. So I’m guessing that you couldn’t apply it in an MRF-zone, in this way. If that is the case, why not? How could you model this in a better way?
