MattiaCFD is on a distinguished road

I would like to setup a simulation, where I use sliding meshes, where I have a disk which is rotating around its own axis and at the same time it is revolving around another point (for example the origin).

How can I handle this in OpenFOAM by using the dynamicMeshDict?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Mattia,

Have a look at the "relativeMotion" tutorial, I think it is close to what you need to do.
