Is that possible to set a rotating wall and a Herschel-Bulkley fluid?

I am trying to simulate the flow of a Herschel-Bulkely fluid in the gap between two coaxial cylinders, the outer cylinder is rotating at a constant speed, while the inner cylinder is set still. In this case, How can I set the dynamic viscosity and the rotating speed of the outer wall?

This isn't catered for in the GUI, but you can still use it to create the OpenFOAM case and then modify the boundary condition for the outer cylinder and the fluid's viscosity model afterwards.
