building geometry of an impeller in GAMBIT
 
Hi! GAMBIT users

can we build an marine impeller with this given data?

1.three flat blades attached to the hub. 2.blade pitch angle 45 degrees 3.diameter 0.036m

If so,could you elaborate on the procedure?

Thanks PKN

the model is built wiht the third software, like solidwork,e.g, then input into Gambit, where you will finish meshing, including setup hub,casing,period,etc; see the manual for further detail

Thanks a lot jesse !

Is the data I mentioned earlier suffficient to build a geometry of impeller in the CAD?

Thanks PKN

no. you need to have the profiles of blade, which has to be imported to ny CAD software or Gturbo

Thanks a lot SAM!

may be, not the right thing to ask...how to get a blade profile of a three flat blade marine propeller with blade pitch angle of 45 degrees & having diameters of 0.036m.

Any way....Thanks a lot! PKN
