Hi guys, I'm trying to simulate a windmill propeller 3D in ANSYS FLUENT 12, Meshing in Gambit. I need help, because I want to calculate the power coefficient. I'm trying different methodologies but results aren't good.

Thanks

In the first methodologie, I used one cylinder and subtract the propeller, I used a bigger cylinder as a wind tunnel. After meshed and simulated the moment coefficients too larger, what can be the problem?
