I use sliding mesh to simulation the rotation, the axis of wind turbine is defined as (1,0,0). My question is that how to define rotational-axis direction of rotational volume wihch contains the wind turbine, is (1,0,0) or (-1,0,0). because when I set wind turbine and rotational volume with the same direction, I can't see the helical wake.

I am modelling in GAMBIT and wish to analyse it on Ansys FLUENT. Can anybody help me out, how to model and simulate? Does any tutorials exist?
