Good day!

I am currently working with my thesis on modeling three-bladed VAWT with cambered airfoil. I am new to CFD modeling and am just be starting to learn the ICEM CFD meshing software. I have read from previous posts about meshing 2D 3bladed VAWT but still don't know where to start. I am aware that i need to use the y grid configuration and rotate it to get a full circular turbine model topology. Can someone please help me or provide me a link for a step-by-step tutorial on how to do the geometry and how can i do the blocking and meshing in ICEM CFD.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much

Thanks Far for the reply.. I've seen some posts related to my study, but i think what i need now is a step by step tutorial on how to block, mesh and rotate a 120 degrees part of my three bladed turbine. DO u know a link where can i find some tutorials? Thanks again
