Default Rotating Vessel: Problem Set-Up

Hi everyone!

Would like to check with you please, about my problem setup.

I have a vertical cylinder that has its fluid inlet at the bottom and the outlet at the top.

My vertical cylinder, however, is spinning about 2 axes: spinning about the vertical axis and tumbling about the horizontal axis. In other words, bi-axial rotation.

I believe that this is a steady state problem. The question is:

- To set up the problem, all I need to do is to go to Boundary Conditions, select my vessel wall and specify the angular velocity, right? This is what is called a moving reference model I believe? Thanks people! Cheers!
