Abstract
The petrol Industry relies on the use of “mud motors” for the generation of the torque needed by the drill bit . Mud motors are essential inverse pumps in which a rotor is set into motion by the passage of a high pressure fluid. The simulation of such devices presents major challenges, since it requires taking into account the details of the contact between the rotor and the stator as well as considering the wetting and drying of large portions of the fluid domain, which “open” or “clo...
