How can I change how fast my fluid flows in different places with SU2?

Background: I'm trying to model a propeller shape, and the only idea I have is to make the air closer to the center go faster, and make it slowly slower as I go out. I don't really have any other ideas. I kinda doubt that there is special software for propeller design...

Thank you for your question.
There are special software programs for propeller design, which often do not use CFD; many of them are freely available on the internet.

In terms of using full CFD for propeller simulation, that is more often done by using a rotating reference frame. There are many examples of this in the literature which can be found online.
