Am I doing the right thing with CFD?

I’m a in the middle of designing a parts washing machine which basically is build around a planetary wheel construction. On these three wheels  are three hydraulic manifold blocks mounted.

The whole thing rotates  with a given speed in a basin of fluid.


So each wheel spins around its own axis and the three of them also spin around the central axis.

I tried to model this in a CFD simulation, but I’m not sure whether I did the right thing with the multiple rotating frames of reference. So I would be very  obliged if someone could take a look at my model.


Any comment would be very welcome, because I’m still in this process of learning.


With regards, Floris
