fea rotating cylinder

I would like to utilize SimulationXpress to analyze the stresses on a rotating pipe. I can calculate the radial (centrifugal) force and apply it on the inside wall with a radially outward vector, also calculate the hoop force though to apply the force vector would require a cylindrical coordinate system - which I am having trouble locating in SW and the axial force at the moment is not of interest.

 

Does SW have a tutorial rotating structures which I may have missed?

 

Thank you
