Hi everyone!

I am trying to simulate airflow through a duct/cylinder (just as a test case to learn how the software works, later I will insert guide vanes to see how the air path changes) and I would like to know how to make a BC for the inlet that is rotating around the centre of the inlet. I have not been able to find how to do this in the user manual and have not seen any thread that have similar question.

I would like to use this for both airflow simulations and Multiphase simulation (I have tested some MPPIC simulations)

I should say that I am pretty new to OpenFoam and have only had a beginners CFD course at University a few years ago.

Edit: It looks like I can use cylindricalInletVelocity for the air, but it is still unclear how I can get a similar function for the injectionModel

Thank you.
