Rotating geometry

I am new to Mfix, but have been using OpenFOAM, Fluent and others for a long time. Mfix looks very interesting but I would like to use it with rotating geometries, for example an impeller in a fluid zone. Is it possible? In openFOAM or Fluent it is quite common.

Yes, this is possible in MFiX, it requires some additional code (UDF) to perform the rotation. Please see the “Rotating drum 3d” and/or “Mixer 3d” tutorials that are distributed with MFiX.

Thanks a lot for the quick response, I will see that
