Default foam-extend-3.1 + probes in rotating frames

I want to use the probes-function in order to record the pressure p at some specific points. In that case, all monitoring points have to rotate with the wall (which is part of a rotating cellZone), so that the relativ position is always the same!

Is there any possibility in this mentioned function to perform that?

Best Regards,

I'm neither using extend, nor rotating systems yet. I want to share an idea though:

Maybe you could use the #codeStream directive ( to compute the correct position of the probes at run time.

Good luck!
