Hello Foamer's

I'm interested in simulating a helicopter rotor.
I've done this with solidBodyMotion with AMI at the interface and works well

I would like to combine the two mesh solvers, dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh and solidBodyMotionFvMesh. Ideally, I want the rotating domain of the mesh to
use mesh elasticity on the rotor blade (located in the center of the rotating domain).

I tried using rotatingWallVelocity and just use dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh. Which does work, but the rotatingWall BC's doesn't work for blades (non circular surfaces)

It seems possible, but don't really know where to start. I assume many could benefit from the functionality.

Any suggestions as to where to start or any dev. versions which have incorporated this.
