    Simulating a rotating solid in cross flow

    Amit Katz

      Hi,

      I have flow going through a chamber against a rotating drum fitted with pins (see image.) The flow leaves the chamber through the large round surface at the bottom.

      A rotating reference frame would not be appropriate for this application, since the flow will definitely not be axisymmetric around the drum. Is there a way to implement a rotating boundary condition on the drum? What is the best solution?
