Rotating: No Stator Nodes Detected

Issue:

When meshing an analysis containing a rotating region, the following error message is given, and the meshing process stops. 

Error: No stator nodes detected

Solution:

Solution

All rotating devices must be immersed within a rotating region. A rotating region, in turn, must touch a static fluid region. A rotating region cannot directly contact a non-rotating solid. The rotating region does not have to be completely surrounded by a static fluid region, but at a minimum, it must partially touch it.

To resolve this issue: 

  • Ensure that the rotating region touches a meshed fluid region.
  • Eliminate any contact between the rotating region and a non-rotating solid.
