ANITIX87 is on a distinguished road
Hi, all.

I ran my experiment, with the UDFs. Everything seems to be working, and I have no errors. However, I have three problems.

1) My coefficient of Lift and coefficient of Drag seem to be switched around. I expect CL = 1.2 and CD = 0.3, and my experiment results in CL = 0.2 and CD = 1.3 when I run more than 100 iterations.

2) I cannot get motion in my animation. Even when running 500 iterations, I played back my animation and the windmill didn't revolve at all. Anybody have any feedback or recommendations?

3) Is there any way to find the mass of my turbine? It is its own geometry (called "turbine" in fluent) but I don't know its mass for modifying my UDF's equation. Is the equation I am using sufficient, by the way? It calculated the force on each face, and then uses F = M*A to calculate the acceleration of the windmill. But since it's angular velocity, should I be using a different equation?

Thanks

TIS

Hi Antonis
I want to solve flow in a radial turbine wheel(with high RPM).
Because the flow work is done on the blades to make the blades rotating,I decided to use dynamics mesh with 6dof.

I have no correct data about my udf file?
can you help me?
