Default Rotating reference frame

Posts: n/a
Hi everyone

I have modelled a tidal current turbine in GAMBIT and have run the model in FLUENT and got good output profiles for the rotor being static. I now need to get the blades rotating...I was wondering if someone could set me in the right direction with regards to this.

I am aware I need to create a rotating reference frame. Do i create a plane slicing right through the middle of my 3 blades that make up my rotor and then play about in FLUENT?

Im usually quite good at mukcing about with stuff once i get started so if someone could tell me how to start it off that would be great.
