help to find torque of a wind turbine using fluent
 
hai, iam doing a project to find the torque output using fluent.

i have the model of the blade and blade and the rotor seperately.after modeling what should i do? should i build a volume something like a brick around the blade and subtract the blade from that? or is there any other method? what boundary conditions should i give?

after completion of proceedings in gambit what r the boundary conditions and other conditions (like operating conditions ..) should i give?

please help me in this regard in detail ! because i have got no help in working gambit and fluent !

Monitor the force on yr blade Go to Solve , monitor , force, then drag to the moment and monitor the force on blade.
