vincentwks is on a distinguished road
hi there guys. I just started using Ansys and i have totally no idea what are the steps i need to take to run the simulation. My project is about simulating the Savonius wind turbine and the Darrieus wind turbine in order to compare their efficiency in terms of their angular velocity and torque generated under the influence of up to 6m/s wind speed. The simulation can either be done in 2D or 3D but 2D is preferable since it looks much simpler. Anyone has done such simulations before? Mind giving me some guildance? thousand thanks!
