Dear friends
I want to model a rotating paddle wheel that intract with water in a free surface pond.
how can I model the rotation of paddle?
how can consider the boundary between water and air?
how can i mesh the non-uniform cylinerical fluid media?

thank you in advance

Do you intend to use FLOW-3D for this problem? it all sounds very doable with its general moving object and free surafce models. There is even an example on the web site

It is absolutely doable with FLOW-3D. In fact similar work has been done in the past before. Please check out the video below.
