Hi. I'm looking at setting up a simulation of a marine current turbine using sliding mesh methods. The problem is, the turbine consists of a series of blades that rotate on an armature that itself rotates about a central axis. Thus I am going to need to nest the rotating frames inside each other. I think turbDyMFoam does moving mesh and specifically sliding mesh problems (I've not used OF for these problems before). Will it do nested motion like this `out of the box' or am I going to need to do some recoding?
