Dear all,

Does any one has any tutorial for simulating a VAWT on ANSYS . I am a mechanical engineer student and i am stuck with my final year project. Your help will mean a lot for me.

Thank you all and Best regards

Hi,
I really doubt that anything like that will be available for VAWT.
I suggest you should take a look at the following papers for HAWT, which will give you valuable information about wind turbine simulations.

"Predicting 2D Airfoil and 3D Wind Turbine Rotor Performance using a Transition Model for General CFD Codes",
R. Langtry, J. Gola and F. Menter, ANSYS CFX, Otterfing, Germany, AIAA-2006-0395 44th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting and Exhibit

and

Caution - CFD analysis of wind turbine is a tough nut to crack according to my experience.
