hi everybody,

I am no to this forum and new to Fluent . I have to do an analysis of an solarcollector for a solar thermic power plant. the profile conture has a parabolic shape and this I have to feed in fluent. but the angle of attack is so high (30 from zenith) that the normal steady approach doesn't work. so could you give me some advice how to set up fluent, so that I get out representative values and that the pulsive turbulances can be handled?

I am a real newbie and the first tests doesn't lead to convergence of the residuals and of cd.

thx in advance for any kind of tip!

greets, Andreas

hi again,

btw, I have a gambit modell for the 60 version here http://horn.hdtvtotal.com/download/p...ektp60deg5.zip perhaps that will helpto understand. and yes, the 5km starting distance is needed to get a specific wind profile.

greets, Andreas
