I'm working on a project, giving by my teachers at the university, about a turbine engine. I'm trying to create a model to study Tesla turbine.
Tesla turbine is an unconventional turbine that uses fluid properties such as boundary layer and adhesion of fluid on series of smooth disks keyed to a shaft, like below.
I have the geometry and the mesh. But i want to impose a torque at the axis turbine on fluent. I have search in ANSYS help, but it isn't easy to understand. How can i do it?
I know, i can do it on CFX, but i never work with it, so i wanted to know if i can do it on Fluent.

Thank you Raef Kobeissi!
I have another problem, now. Is about the convergence.
When i introduce pressure-inlet and pressure_outlet or outflow, the initialize solution don't converge. Is this a problem with the mesh? Or with the boundary conditions?
