      hi, ni am studying vertical axis wind turbine. I am trying to do an analysis to find out that at a specific wind speed (input) what will be the turbine rpm?ni have already done the study by giving the turbine rotational speed (rad/s) using the sliding mesh technique.nWhat i want to do is that the turbine should rotate on it's own due to wind load not because of a pre set condition.....nthanks!n

      That will be a function of the force on the blade(s) and resistance to motion due to flow & whatever the VAWT is attached to. Should be possible with a user function. n

      Rigid body motion look in the CFX documentation n
