 April 23, 2013, 06:22 determine rpm value of turbine #1 New Member   ruya Join Date: Apr 2013 Location: TURKEY Posts: 4 Rep Power: 5 hi friends. I have a problem that how can determine value of turbine flow meter. Firstly I gave an arbitrary value to rotor such as 11 rad/s then I calulated torque with cfd- post but I don't know that I move on or how can ı compare torque and rpm that I gave. I want to help. Thanks.

I prefer that I obtain volumetric flow according to given rpm. but I have a problem because volumetric flow rate doesn't change according to value of rpm. This stiuation is impossible and rpm doesn't effect flow rate.

On a dyno, you would specify the MFR and load to get the resulting speed, however to do this in a CFD simulation requires a UDF to modify the rotational speed depending on the torque at the turbine axis. This is rather complicated and not recommended. An easier approach is to set the rotational speed and MFR then measure the resulting torque. Once you graph these results, you will get the same figure as if you had dyno tested the turbine. Stu __________________ http://bc247.wordpress.com
