Dear Foamers,

I am working on a cylinder rotating in a fluid zone.(no interaction between fluid and solid. only fluid part, just a rigid body) I use the fluent3DMeshToFoam to generate the fluid mesh. The cylinder I give a wall boundary condition. My question is if the cylinder boundary is rotating with a constant angular velocity, how to define the dynamicMeshDict to allow the whole fluid domain mesh rotating with the cylinder wall. I mean I used dynamicMotionSolverFvMesh now, which dynamic mesh solver should I used to update the whole domain mesh at each time step? (the fluid field does not change, just the fluid mesh rotate with cylinder)

Wish for your help
Thanks so much!
