Default Reg - Vertical Axis wind mill analysis

Hello everyone, i am doing an analysis on vertical axis windmill using star CCM+. I have some doubt on my analysis which i mentioned it below.

i had modeled the blade as per the dimension (1846 x 372)and i need to calculate the force acting on the surface of the blade. initially a had made an rectangular environment and had placed the blade front face facing one third of the rectangular environment original length. Isthis is right or any standard is available for placing it. If any standards available kindly mention it too.

with regards, P.Adaikalaraja
