rikikiwistiti is on a distinguished road

I'm working on some analysis of flaps and tabs on a wind turbine blade. I used ICEM and Gambit to mesh the basic (without flap/ tab modification) foils. Then used Fluent to analyse the foils.

I'm new with CFD so what I think it's that the use of Dynamic mesh and both UDF will be needed?! Am I right here ?!

ps: If you need some files?... just ask me!
Here are some pictures to illustrate the analysisthat I already did in fluent.
