Hi everybody

i'm trying to simulate a Darrieus 2D vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT). Since the blades are rotating i thought to use a rotating reference frame. In this case, my idea was just to add an extra term in the NS equation to balance the centrifugal forces and change the BC at infinity in space and time to take into account the change in wind's direction. Do you have suggestions? maybe better ideas?

thanks in advance
