Use rotating frame of reference for the cylinder using MRF or DMM. MRF is steady state analysis however DMM is unsteady state analysis. You will require interface to be created between rotating side and rono-rotating side in model. Please look at the blower model given in tutorials.

Hope this helps, AJ
