Hi, i am new for the siemens cfd software. I wanted to simulate the fluid flow around the rotating propeller with 1500rpm and the pressure distribution on the blade of propeller. I have setup the mesh for rotate domain and fluid domain as air, I have set the rotating frame of reference to the rotate domain, will this well enough to let the system consider the propeller is rotating? Or any other boundary condition need to be set.

I have tried one to solve the simulation but the result seems like the fluid is not rotating when passing through the propeller. Can someone help me on this and let me know am i have any wrong setup. Really appreciate it!
