Hi everyone,

I'm currently running a flapping and pitching wing in Fluent and have defined this motion in the wind axis as velocity inlets (using UDF's). Because my reference frame is now non-inertial I need to include an extra acceleration term in my Navier Stokes equation. What feature in Fluent allows me to do this?
