Reply To: Reversed Magnus effect


Dear Martins Brics,

did you apply this rotation by settling a positive value for the angular velocity or acceleration for the particle?
It seems that for HLBM-2D the rotation is defined in a mathematice sense, meaning that a positive velocity leads to counter-clockwise rotation.
You can verify this by setting gravitation to zero and having a look at the velocity field.
We will have a look at that for the next release to make this more intutitive / consistent.

Best regards
