Hello. I'm going to simulate a 3 and 4 bladed aircraft propeller encountered with side flow. Can anybody out there help me to get some idea to simulate this propeller? I've used MRF before, however I got negative lift result. For your information, Fluent 6.1 was used to simulate this propeller?

yes you can do it very simple. once you have the geometry all you have to do is to put your propeller into a cilinder and give a rotation mouvement to the reference. in the tutorials you can find a model for rotor stator flow. is the same thing only that your rotor is the propeler and the stator is the plane. yes i've done a hovercraft propeler in fluent and those ware happy with the results

Hi . i want to do propeller simulation in CFD and then extract results like
VORTEX INTERACTION
THRUST DISTRIBUTION
PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION
VELOCITY CONTOURS etc
So plz guide me how can i do it i.e Meshing type ?? boundary conditions in FLUENT ???? .
