Inventor 2012 FE, how to simulate spinning component

I am struggling to find a solution how to apply forces to a component who is spinning. More specific i am interested in the centrifugal loads distributed over the component.

Take an inducer wheel for a turbocharger. It is a complicated component and very difficult to calcullate by hand. it is spinning with high revs, and the rev limit it set by the centrifugal forces acting.


Any ideas ?
