2 Attachment(s)

I'm working on some analysis of flaps and tabs on a wind turbine blade. I used ICEM and Gambit to mesh the basic (without flap/ tab modification) foils. Then used Fluent to analyse the foils. For my report I would like to present some animations (moving tab => extension/retention or moving flap over an angle deviation of 30) of those tab/flaps and perhaps get some other results of this (An example of what I would like to achief is presented by rosikru...but using Matlab => or

I'm new with CFD so what I think it's that the use of Dynamic mesh and both UDF will be needed?! Am I right here ?!

Thanks in advance!!! :)

ps: If you need some files?... just ask me!
Here are some pictures to illustrate the analysisthat I already did in fluent.
