 September 30, 2010, 08:28 How to define rotational direction for wind turbine #1 Member   tom Join Date: Feb 2010 Posts: 46 Rep Power: 7 Hi all, Does somebody can tell me how to define the rotational direction of a wind turbine. I use sliding mesh to simulation the rotation, the axis of wind turbine is defined as (1,0,0). My question is that how to define rotational-axis direction of rotational volume wihch contains the wind turbine, is (1,0,0) or (-1,0,0). because when I set wind turbine and rotational volume with the same direction, I can't see the helical wake.

I am modelling in GAMBIT and wish to analyse it on Ansys FLUENT. Can anybody help me out, how to model and simulate? Does any tutorials exist?
