Rotating: Particle Traces pass through the solid Impeller

Issue:

Particle traces appear to pass through the solid impeller in a rotating machinery analysis.

Solution:

Solution

By default, particle traces in rotating analyses are plotted in the absolute velocity frame.

To prevent this, display the traces in the relative frame.  

To display relative velocity, select Relative Velocity from the global Results list.
