FJSJ is on a distinguished road
Hi guys,

I would like to do a complete model about wind turbine. I mean, I have 2 blade model but, in this moment, Im running only 1 blade and MRF with periodic bc. So.. I would like to do the entire model and then simulate it. So..Im not sure about how to do this. I mean, I can generate the entire mesh, but then... If I want to simulate the flow through the wind turbine and then make a video.. I dont know how to do the setting.

If anybody can give me some advices I would be grateful.

Thank you.

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
Then you may use moving mesh, with sliding mesh:
stator + rotor, where both domains are disconnected
if you are using gambit, check here:
3d wing from 2d airfoil-volume sweep
