Dear all

Recently our group simulates flows around rotating body such as flywheel and wind turbine.
We use std. k-epsilon model or k-omega SST turbulence model with wall functions (very standard ones)
to the rotating surfaces and moderate y+ values of O(10).

I'd like to know that such wall functions can be applied to the rotating surfaces.
Any references, information and suggestions were highly welcomed.

Thanks in advance.
