Hi, i'm a master's student i'm trying to simulate the 3d HAWT case in Fluent. Can anyone tell me if my case setup is correct.

Models- viscous-Spalart-Allmaras (1eqn)
Cell zone condition > mesh motion>Speed 1.08 rad/s > rotation axis direction> y:1 > relative to: absolute
Boundary conditions :

Blade and hub : Stationary or can i use moving with relative to adjacent cell zone

Inlet: velocity inlet in y-dir at 9m/s
FarField: velocity inlet in y-dir at 9m/s
outlet- pressure outlet

My question are :
1) Is my cell zone condition correct?
2)Are my boundary conditions correct?
3) Should my blade and hub be stationary or moving wall.

Thanks in advamce.
