Default Rotating Blade in OpenFOAM

Dear all!

I would like to simulate air flow around a rotating blade with "disk diameter"/"airfoil chord"=6 and rpm=200 by using OpenFOAM. I am totally new with this solver (but not in CFD).

I was wondering which one of the sample tutorials is appropriate for starting point.
Seems to be more convenience to consider the SRFPimpleFoam module. Am I right?

Any thing else you may want to say to a beginner in this regard?

Thanks for your help.

You need to specify your problem better.
Compressible/ Incompressible?
Stationary/ Time-dependent?
Full 360 degree rotation or just one blade with cyclic conditions?
Rotating mesh?
