Dear Foamers,

Want to run a mesh of a rotating wall with an inner screw and have the wall pull the fluid past the screw. I tried to import the movingRotatingWallVelocity BC into my OF V1.5 but cannot get working.

Not a programmer!!! but willing to look into the code and can see that the 1.5dev is coded different than a similar bc in V1.5
(movingWallVelocityFvPatchVectorField). Would like to be able to make this mesh move and learn the proper steps to recode my BC to do this and am following:

However, I am abit confused and wonder if someone would clear up these statements for me?

For the new choice to become available, it needs to be instantiated and linked
with the executable.
Beware of the defaultFvPatchField problem: verify code with print

Thankyou, Lori Holmes
