I have hydrokinetics turbine simulation with Ansys fluent 6 DOF 19.2. Everything is working well, the turbine rotates because of the water stream. I can calculate the torque and Force of the turbine. My question is, how to calculate the RPM?
Assuming you set up the axis for the fluid, check angular velocity and/or circumferential velocity. For the latter you'll need to remember to correct for radial position.
Hallo Mr. Rwoolhou,
many thanks for the answer. Unfortunately, I am new with Ansys and I am not sure about the axis setup and where to check the angular velocity, could you please show me?
Have a look in the tutorials, they'll show you where everything is. Click on "help" in Fluent at 2019Rx onwards.
finally I changed into Ansys CFX which is more easier for me solving the problem, thank you very much
