Jet Engine Compressor


This is an example of the use of moving boundary to simulate a flow with rotational and stationary blades in a compressor. Note that the following input file specifies cmode=0 (non-reactive flow mode), but it assumes incompressible flows. For a better simulation of compressors, cmode=3 (compressible flow mode) can be used. The below youtube video is what you can simulate with the following bc.bmp and grid.txt.

Computational time: 5 mins/1000 steps
