Well it would be difficult for someone to explain everthing out here. Instead you could go through the tutorial - Flow in an Axial Rotor/Stator which decribes setting up of a problem in turbo mode.

Sans

Hi,

I don't know of any tutorials available on helicopters. I recommend doing the other CFX tutorials so you get familiar with the software. Even better, go to some CFX training.

hi, i managed to create a case on the cfx by creating 2 domains ; a solid domain which is the propeller and the other is the boundary regions which is a cylinder, and meshing it and solving it . But the results were so frustrating because it seems there is no interaction between the two domains and the velocity of air coming out of the propeller is too small although it runs with 2000 rpm. please i need help because the time of my graduation is so near.thank you.

Hi,

For the flow around a helicopter you don't need a solid region for the blades. Just put a void in the mesh of the rotating domain containing the blades. Then make a second stationary domain containing the helicopter fuselage and the surrounding air and connect the two with a GGI. You can probably use stage averaging if you don't care about the detailed interaction between the passing blades and the fuselage.

As previously mentioned the tutorial example on Axial flow rotor/stator is a good place to start. You should be able to generalise the concepts from that.
