Navier Stokes equations in rotation frame..?

I have experience in writing viscous compressible flow solver for non moving objects. Now I want to wirte a new code or extend the earlier code for flows in turbo machines. So can any one please suggest the right material to refer to get understanding of Solving the Navier Stokes equations in rotation frame....

Thank you all.

There are many different ways of implementing the solver for rotating objects. Broadly they can be classified as grid deforming methods and rigid body rotation. Look for older NASA technical documents on flapping airfoils. You would find a lot of discussion on both the methods. Also look into the dissertation by Young on flapping airfoils. He gives a detailed discussion of the grid deforming method.

Hi Harish,

Thank you very much for your replay,
are those reports avaliable for public domain if so can you please give me the link of those reports.
Thanks in advance
