I have created 2D stator and rotor and applied mixing plane between them. I am confused about axis of rotation while giving frame motion to 2D rotor. In real scenario, the blades are moving in z-axis. However, in my case I have only 2 axis. In which axis, should I apply axis of rotation. Secondly, I am also thinking about that can I give transnational velocity instead of rotational velocity. Since, it is a 2D domain, each rotor blades pass through the stator with some transnational velocity.

In this cases normally rotation is replaced by translation. in other words rotating domain will be given a linear velocity the magnitude of which is r*omega. (r is radial distance of the 2D profile from turbine axis and omega is angular speed.) For instance consider a 2D domain with reference frame of XY. If the axial(streamwise) direction is x, the so called velocity will be set in direction of Y. So everything happens in XY plane. regards
