Dear all,

is it possible to use more than one cellZone as a rotating part in one domain?

I like to use 7 rotors and checkMesh confirms that I have 7 cellZones and 8 regions, respectively.

But when I add more cellZones in the dynamicMeshDict file, always just the last is considered and rotates during the solution.

Is the a chance that all rotors rotate at the same time?
Thank you in advance.

Code:
solidBodyMotionFvMeshCoeffs

{
    cellZone        rotor.1;

    solidBodyMotionFunction  rotatingMotion;
    rotatingMotionCoeffs
    {
        CofG        (52 0 0);
        radialVelocity (0 0 -360); // deg/s
    }

	cellZone        rotor.0;

    solidBodyMotionFunction  rotatingMotion;
    rotatingMotionCoeffs
    {
        CofG        (0 0 0);
        radialVelocity (0 0 -360); // deg/s
    }
    
	
}

multiSolidBodyMotionFvMesh is the key!
