Moving Reference Frame (MRF)

Project Outsourcing

Outsource your project to the MR CFD simulation engineering team. Our experts are ready to carry out every CFD project in all related engineering fields. Our services include industrial and academic purposes, considering the ANSYS Fluent software's wide range of CFD simulations. By outsourcing your project, you can benefit from MR CFD's primary services, including Consultation, Training, and CFD Simulation. The project freelancing procedure is as follows:

1

An official contract will be set based on your project description and details.

2

As we start your project, you will have access to our Portal to track its progress.

3

You will receive the project's resource files after you confirm the final report.

4

Finally, you will receive a comprehensive training video and technical support.

Multiphase Reference Frames (MRF)

Most CFD applications include fluid moving around or inside of stationary objects. Meshes are hence fixed. Incompressible Steady Navier-Stokes equations are solved if the flow is incompressible. Flow inside of pipes and flow around airfoils are two very typical uses. Since the airfoil and pipe are stationary in both situations, the incompressible steady Navier-Stokes equations are used to solve the meshes.

A steady-state approach used in industrial computational fluid dynamics to model challenges with rotating components is the Moving Reference Frame (MRF) approach. It is thought to need less computer power while efficient enough for most industrial situations.

This strategy’s underlying principles are straightforward but elegant. During the meshing phase, a small volumetric zone of mesh cells is produced around the spinning body, and the MRF zone encompasses this area.

The MRF zone is rotated around the body’s axis while the body remains still during the simulation phase. In a reference frame that rotates or moves at the same speed as the rotating or moving geometry, governing equations are solved. On a physical level, it means that we see the flow field around the moving body while seated on it. The flow field becomes stable concerning the geometry as a result.

When a turbine is rotating and we are on the ground, the flow field surrounding the turbine seems transitory to us. If we sat on a turbine blade and rotated with it, instead of seeing it from a distance, the flow field around us or the turbine would appear stable.
