How to employ inflation on a turbine blade?

    • Ak Muhammad Adam Pg Hj Ahmad

      Hello is the question stated above, can anyone suggest how to apply inflation on turbine blade.

      Im trying inflate turbine in its rotational sub-domain.

      For starter, i meshed the sub-domain using multizone prism with tetra free mesh, with automatic sourcing. got myself a not horrible mesh, can run on fluent but clearly it's not good enough of a mesh for FEA. Can anyone suggest how i can add a boundary layer on my turbine.

      Do i need to source the face on the turbine blade including the blade tip?

      Do i include the hub surface as well?

      Do i include the fillet surface between blade and the hub?


      Thank you for your help seriosuly

      Please use tetrahedron method for meshing. For inlfation you can generate inflation on blades and hub depending on how that inflation ends. You can use aspect ratio method for generating inflation. 

      Please go through help manual for more details
