Hi everybody,

I am trying to simulate a rotating airfoil, which means an airfoil changing its angle of attack until reaching the stall angel. I used simpleFoam for the static simulations, any suggestions or ideas for this case ??

thank you in advance

The wingMotion tutorial of the pimpleDyMFoam solver is a good place to start.
