February 8, 2021 at 10:59 amRobAnsys EmployeeHave a look on here, there are several people doing much the same. VAWT and HAWT may be good key words if turbine returns too many results. Note, you will need a relationship between force on the blades and rotation speed as an input: CFD won't give you all the data without some good boundary conditions. n

February 10, 2021 at 9:53 pmYasserSelimaSubscribernYou will need to use dynamic mesh and write a UDF using Define_CG_MOTION or SDOF .. the function would calculate the moment on the turbine and provide the solver with the new rotational speed in the next time step. n
