Hello Everybody;

I am doing my thesis on VAWT with help of Fluent and Gambit. I am stuck where i am have do moving mesh on VAWT. I am attaching my grid also with this post.
Please somebody give answers to my doubt..
How to use interferface Boundary Condition in my case? I am giving Interface BC to big circle and small cirlce. so total interferface Boundary type are in my case is 4. After exporting mesh in Fluent, i am giving grid interface of this 4 Boundary Type(BT). But i guess walls are creating rather than interior. 4 walls with number are creating. But still case is runnig very good in fluent but Cm graph is not getting as i wanted plus i doubt rotor is rotating in my case.

1) how to use interface BC?

2) How to find out rotar is rotating or not?

3) Which option to select for angular speed of rotar "moving reference frame or moving mesh"?
