Cylindrical Boundary Conditions

I am wanting to use an inlet BC at the end of a cylinder that will cause a rotational flow field along the cylindrical wall. Ideally the inlet flow will be tangential to the outer wall all around the cylinder, requiring a BC that has a changing inlet flow vector.
So the question is...
Is there a way to specify flow direction based on a reference point/position in cylindrical coordinates?
P.s. - The only reason I am not too keen on using a rotating frame of reference is that I want to see where the rotational flow field will break down.
