swordofangel is on a distinguished road
I am using fluent solver (15.0) to analyze a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine but I am not able to gain the correct result not in sliding mesh nor in MRF. My domain is 2d space with a single inlet and outlet and a symmetry. When I create a velocity contour I clearly see that there is break in the velocity gradient of in the domain and not the correct type of wake formation. I need help to troubleshoot the problem that I know is occurring due to interface. I NEED HELP ASAP. I AM ATTACHING PICTURE OF MY VELOCITY GRADIENT CURVE AND MESH.
