I am trying to simulate the interface water-air on a rotating disk where the water flow is fed at the center of the disk. I need to know the heigth and the shape of the water film on the disk. I'm using the VOF model but I am not able to make the disk rotating and moreover I would like to run the simulation on a steady state formulation but the simulation does not reach the convergence.

Someone can give me any advices?

Thank you in advance

Perhaps you could use:

define > boundary conditions > [your disk] > momentum > moving wall > rotational

Good luck!
