I have an enclosure with some heat sources and a spindle motor on which a disk is mounted. The disc spins with a certain angular velocity. As the spinning disk will move the air around it and hence cause a difference in the heat transfer effectiveness, I would need to simulate a spinning disc inside the enclosure too. In IcePak, can I just create a wall,calculate the linear velocity from the angular velocity and then specify that value as components in the X, Y and Z directions? Any suggestions will be really appreciated. Regards, Akash
