Tesla Turbine analysis in CFX
 
Hello all,

Abstract: The turbine, invented by Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), is a bladeless turbine. In this article, we visualize and analyze the flow in this turbine with a commercial CFD software. First, we present the information from the literature that we retain for the construction of the numerical model. Then, we present the numerical model and the used mathematical models. Finally, we analyze the results of the simulation.

How to take boundary condition in 3D model.

I assume you are asking what boundary conditions to use for this model - Wouldn't they be just normal inlet and outlet boundaries to define the flow?

Hi Mr. sivaramakrishnaiah,

do you have experimental data to compare? If it is, you will know what BC to impose at inlet and outlet of the steam turbine. Did you find anything at ScienceDirect.com ? Or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_turbine .

Rogerio.
