meshing of turbine blade
I want to learn turbo machines analysis in GAMBIT and Fluent.....
Anyone who have experience of CFD please help me....
please give me if u have any tutorials (apart from given within softwares)....
I am working for my masters thesis on effect of stagger angle on turbine blade cascade.
Thank you.

tutorials of turbine blades
Give me your mail ID i should send,actually i have pdf format
All the best.

There are two ways of doing this.
1. using Template for turbomachinery i.e. G turbo. This is the easiest way with minimal user input
2. Manual method

Now tell me whichmethod you like.

@ Far
Thanks for reply.
Does G turbo stands for Turbo tool in gambit.
I would first like to go for easy method as I have less little experience in turbo meshing.

Thank You.

You just have to convert the IGES file into turbo format i.e .tur . and then press some buttons in gambit. your file of turbine/compressor simulation is ready.
That is all you need in gambit and then run solution in fluent

@ Far
Thanks for reply.

I have done gambit tutorials related to turbo tool but since same tuto is not in fluent i am having problems...
I dont know which boundary conditions r to be applied.
I need some tutorial of turbo which guides through both gambit and fluent.
some research papers r there but most of them requires subscription.
do u have any tuto apart frm already given in software?

Far May 31, 2009 06:33

you need following boundary condtions
1. Total pressure , total temprature, flow inlet angles at inlet
2. Static pressure at outlet corresponding to required mass flow rate and you need to turn on the radial equilibrium option
3. Fluid speed equal to your rpm (set the rpm as low value and then gradualy increase to required level.
4. Casing is stationary
5. periodic conditions for periodic surfaces

Flow setting
1. Initially 1st order and courant number 1
2. Flow solver coupled implicit (also named as density based in fluent 6.3 and latter)
3. initialize from inlet values

Turbulence model
1. K epsilon
2. SA (I have worked extensively with SA and found to be very accurate)
3. SST

Hello sivaramakrihnaiah, could you send me the pdf? My e-mail:
Im going to make a windturbine meshing and I need learn about it.

Thank you.

Hi all,
I am sending link here download,

Pat November 14, 2009 15:40

think you for the file

Alberto1987 November 22, 2009 23:48

I have to simulate something like this for the University and it can be useful for me.

Thanks in advice
