A CFD analysis of a Turbo fan engine

I am having an inquire about simulating a turbo fan engine as a real model with fan, compressor , combustion chamber , turbo everything and to simulate the same time the rotation of the rotors and the combustion

Does anyone knows any idea of which software can do that easily ? did anyone did that before?

Most of the mainstream/major codes can, at least in theory, manage to do this. That is they have the physics/geometrical support.

The reality is that it would be an enormous model that would take forever to run and probably not give particularly good results for any of the individual sections.

I believe Fluent had a DOE (or someone similar) project to do this a few years back, not sure of the outcome.
