In the interface between general relativity and relativistic quantum
mechanics, we analyse rotating effects on the scalar field subject to a
hard-wall confining potential. We consider three different scenarios of general
relativity given by the cosmic string spacetime, the spacetime with space-like
dislocation and the spacetime with a spiral dislocation. Then, by searching for
a discrete spectrum of energy, we analyse analogues effects of the
Aharonov-Bohm effect for bound states and the Sagnac effect.
