Setting Output Control and Creating Monitor


Points
In this section you will create monitor points to monitor flow properties,
integrated flow quantities, and mesh displacement. Monitor points provide
useful information on the quality of the reference phase and frequency
produced by the simulation. These monitor points should also be used to
monitor convergence and patterns during the simulation.
Note:

When comparing your Fourier Transformation plots to those


from the reference case, make sure the monitor points are
placed in the same relative locations with respect to the
initial configuration in both cases.

Monitoring pressure and velocity provides feedback on the


momentum equations, while monitoring temperature
provides feedback on the energy equations. Monitor points
help check that the solver equations are being solved
correctly.

Set up the solver to output transient results file to analyze the imposed mesh
motion values. The transient blade row analysis type offers the Fourier
compression method of storing transient periodic data.

You will set up three types of monitor points for this simulation. Firstly,
you will create a set of monitor points to monitor variables at specific
cylindrical coordinates within the domain. Cylindrical coordinates are
useful in turbomachinery applications because they allow you to place
monitor points with the same relative position inside different passages
by shifting the theta component by the equivalent passage pitch. Next,
you will create a second set of monitor points to monitor the values of
expressions. Finally, you will create a third set of monitor points to
monitor aerodynamic damping.
